Friends with Food

St. Mark Lutheran Church, the Food Bank of Iowa, and the SALUD Multicultural Health Coalition of Storm Lake are working together to fight food insecurity right here in our community. Without the help of members of our community, Friends with Food would not be possible. We invite you to volunteer if this is something you are interested in. Discover more about this unique opportunity by reading on.

With the help of friends with food, a few more can be fed.

Friends with Food offers monthly food delivery to those who are permanently or temporarily homebound and with no easy access to transportation. As official partners of the Food Bank of Iowa, we order our food from them as well as receive free produce and dairy products to distribute to these families on the third Thursday of each month.

Know someone who would benefit? 

We invite you and other community leaders to share with us the names of those who you feel would benefit from this program. Friends With Food helps families or individuals who:

  • May have difficulty accessing transportation
  • May have a limited social support network
  • Are temporarily or permanently homebound due to age, illness, injury, or disability

The monthly supplemental food delivery is free for the family.

If you know of a family, please ask if they will permit you to share the following information: 

  • First & Last Name
  • Address
  • Number of people in the household
  • Number of people  18 years of age or less
  • Number of people 19-59 years old
  • Number of people 60 years old or older

If you know of anyone who would benefit from the monthly food distribution, you may also email Di Daniels with the names of the individual(s). Direct Contacts are below if you have any other questions.
