Esperanza Center hosts mobile food pantries throughout the year, providing groceries to individuals and families in need throughout our community in partnership with River Bend Food Bank, who provides the food. Volunteers help unload trucks, distribute food and assist those participating in the food pantry.
For times and locations of other River Bend Food Bank mobile food pantries, please call 563-345-6490 ext. 200.
Each pantry typically needs 30-40 volunteers to assist with loading and unloading of food, hosting our guests as they receive groceries and more. Volunteer sign-up opens about one month prior to the food pantry. Great opportunity to serve as a family (while young children are welcome, they will need to remain with their parents during the pantry).
