New Opportunities Food Pantry Program

New Opportunities is a local Iowa nonprofit organization and partner of the Food Bank of Iowa. We work to provide critical food assistance and food pantry services to Iowans living with food insecurity.

We believe no one in our community should go hungry, and it’s through the generosity of our local communities that we can fill the gap left by state programs.

Interested in Donating?

Your donation to one of our food pantries helps provide other members of your community with free food and the nutrition they and their families require. We are always accepting food pantry donations, and we also accept monetary donations. As a registered non-profit, your financial assistance to our organization is a completely tax-deductible donation.

Our food pantries in Iowa most need non-perishable food and personal care items, such as:

  • Canned fruit, vegetables, and meat
  • Rice and pasta, as well as rice and pasta dinner kits
  • Cereal
  • Soup
  • Peanut butter and sunflower butter
  • Canola oil and olive oil
  • Diapers
  • Pads and tampons
  • Toothpaste

To arrange a food donation drop-off, contact one of our local offices today.
