Emergency Food Box appreciates community support

As we begin 2022, the Emergency Food Box Board on behalf of the volunteers and clients says “Thank You” to the Marshall County community for their generous support during 2021.

In early 1983, a task force of Churches United in Compassion and Concern (CUCC) decided to explore the need for establishing a food pantry in Marshalltown. Study of the area revealed there was a need to provide temporary help for people in need of basic food supplies, and thus, the seed was planted.

The seed grew as new needs were discovered. As needs grew, changes were made. The one thing that did not change was the strong support of the Marshall County community. For 38 years, individuals, businesses, schools, churches and many clubs and organizations have supported the food box ministry with great generosity.

As the board and volunteers meet the challenges of 2022, we know that we can depend on the Marshall County community’s support. Again, thank you from the board and the clients who benefit from your generosity. May God bless you for your concern for those who need food.

Monetary donations may be sent to the Emergency Food Box at P. O. Box 391.
