Merchants Bonding Company coordinated a drive-through food drive, collecting non-perishable food items and monetary donations to help support the Food Bank of Iowa. In addition, the Merchants Foundation donated $2,500 to the Food Bank’s COVID Relief Fund.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, the Food Bank of Iowa is experiencing an increased need of food for Iowans. The Food Bank’s top priority is to ensure that vulnerable Iowans have safe access to the nutrition and resources they need, and that the Food Bank can respond quickly during emergencies like COVID-19.
Uninterrupted operations continue every day as the need in Iowa grows. The Food Bank of Iowa’s COVID Relief Fund has a goal to raise $4,000,000 or 18,000,000 meals. They continue to accept donations and those donations can be made here.
