Six foot loaves shipped to food pantry

Around the Area

Mark Philp (RSVP volunteer) and students from HTC help at the Fort Madison Food Pantry to unload the recent delivery from the Iowa Food Bank. Because of a slight misunderstanding, the 6-inch Italian bread loaves turned out to actually be 6-foot loaves. Nevertheless, these loaves were perfect for the Pantry’s clients with 4 or more in their families. The Food Pantry partners with the Iowa Food Bank as well as our local groceries to purchase, at a reduced cost, food for the 350+ clients that are served monthly. Donations to the Food Pantry are welcome during Pantry hours—Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9am to 12noon and 1pm to 3pm. Monetary donations can be mailed to the Fort Madison Food Pantry, POB 273, Fort Madison, Iowa 52627.
