This is certainly a difficult time for so many. Between workers being laid off, schools closing, and shortages of groceries and other items, folks are struggling right now.
When times get tough, we need to look out for our friends and neighbors — especially our older neighbors who might be scared to head outside to the grocery store.
In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Food Bank of Iowa is collecting monetary donations to keep their food banks running strong for all of the folks who rely on them for nutritious meals.
The food bank typically serves 175,000 Iowans, and that number is sure to go up during these times of crisis.
They are opening more mobile food distribution centers and are working to provide children who have lost their usual school breakfasts and lunches with meals to keep them full and healthy.
While we are practicing social distancing and leaving our homes only when necessary, we can’t help out in all of the ways we normally would — but we can still make a difference.
Thank you so much for helping out. I’m constantly surprised by the generosity and kindness of Iowans — and I know that during this time of fear and uncertainty it will be no different.
Standing Tall for All,
