People often ask what kinds of food items we need for our Altoona and East Des Moines food pantries. The answer changes depending on the season. Right now, we need:
canned chili beans
canned pasta in tomato sauce
corn muffin mix
The best time to bring your non-perishable donations to the Caring
Hands Food Pantry is Monday-Friday between 9:00 am - 11:00 am.
If that doesn’t work with your schedule, you can always put non-perishable items in the specially-marked food barrels at Fareway or Hy-Vee in Altoona or Pleasant Hill. Thank you for your generosity. We couldn’t help mobilize compassionate service towards neighbors without your support.
