River Bend Foodbank has a garden!

Working in garden

Thanks to our "Garden Club" volunteers for braving the heat and bugs to help us plant, to our gardener Bob Jurgensen for his time and services tilling the soil, and to the Corn Crib Nursery, Teske Pet & Garden, and Wallaces Garden Center for your generous donations. The produce grown in the garden, which includes tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, will be given to our agencies to distribute to their clients. If you are interested in joining our "Garden Club" (no expertise required!), please give us a call at (563) 345-9490


Our new 60,000 square foot warehouse will enable us to feed the hungry like never before!

Although we have moved from Illinois to Iowa, our service area remains the same—17 counties in Illinois and 5 counties in Iowa.
