One of the most impactful gifts our supporters can give River Bend Food Bank is a monetary donation. Because of the Food Bank’s low cost of operation, we are able to provide 5 meals for every dollar donated! So if you are thinking of going to the store to buy food specifically to donate to River Bend, we ask that you don’t purchase the food, but instead donate the money to make the most of your gift.

While monetary donations to River Bend Food Bank are preferred, food donations are welcome as well. If you have food in your home that you are not going to eat or has “expired,” please consider donating it to River Bend rather than throwing it away. Or if you prefer to purchase food, we ask that you buy food that you personally would like to eat. Our partner agencies find some items to be more in demand among their clients than others.

The most-needed food items are:

  • Canned meats
  • Canned stews and chili
  • Peanut butter
  • Canned soups
  • Tuna
  • Cereal
  • Canned vegetables and fruits

Donations can be brought to the Food Bank Monday through Friday between 8 am – 4:30 pm.

We are located at:

4010 Kimmel Drive
Davenport, IA 52802

You can also donate food directly to your local food pantry. Please call us at 563-345-6490 to find the pantry closest to your location.



River Bend Foodbank relies on the generosity of its supporters to help fight hunger in eastern lowa and western Illinois. Each year, over 22 million meals are missed in our service area. Your financial support is essential to bridging the meal gap in our community.



Volunteers are crucial to the operation of River Bend Foodbank. Without volunteers, it would not be possible to collect, sort, and repack all of the food that comes through our warehouse every day as well as distribute food through our various programs. Together we can solve hunger™.



If you or a loved one is hungry, please let us help you. Use our website to locate a food pantry or meal site in your area.
