Hot Air Balloon Festival September 26-28

The Quad Cities Balloon Festival will be held at a new location this year—the Rock Island County Fairgrounds in East Moline. This is a great family event! Nonperishable food will be collected for River Bend Foodbank. For more information, visit www.quadcitiesballoonfestival.com.

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!

Our new address is

We have a new phone number, too!

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

The Great American Milk Drive

Working in garden

River Bend Foodbank is always in need of items, but one that is rarely donated is milk. If you donate to The Great American Milk Drive the Foodbank receives milk coupons to give to families in our service area. To donate, please visit https://milklife.com/give.
