Mobile Food & Supply Distribution

When COVID-19 hit Iowa, UCAN’s team of volunteers jumped straight into action to support those families and individuals who lost employment, were sick and needed our help.  With 3 teams of volunteers distributing food and supplies to those most in need in across Urbandale, more than 1800 individuals received support on a weekly basis.

Today, that support continues and now is a permanent program of UCAN. Working as a mobile pantry site with the Food Bank of Iowa, we continue to serve 3 neighborhoods in Urbandale, as well as a school pantry and senior pantry delivery.  We need your help to ensure residents in need can have access to emergency supplies.
