FLOW OF FOOD
Feeding People Facing Hunger
Food manufacturers, distributors, grocers, and individuals/businesses donate food and funds.
River Bend Food Bank
Inspects, sorts, and distributes food to 300 partner agencies.
Food pantries, shelters, soup kitchens, residential treatment facilities, daycare centers, senior centers, and River Bend Food Bank programs distribute food directly to neighbors in need.
Children & Adults Experiencing Hunger
More than 75,000 children, families, and seniors now have a meal on their table every day.
River Bend Food Bank 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 Food Bank. Without volunteers, it would not be possible to collect, sort, and distribute all the food that comes through our warehouse every day. Together we're feeding people today and ending hunger tomorrow.
If you or a loved one is experiencing hunger, please let us help you. Find a food pantry or meal site near you with our interactive map.
