Hunger is a daily battle for families affected by a sudden job loss, unforeseen emergency or medical expense. Hunger impacts children, the working poor, the disabled, and also seniors who rely on Social Security as their only source of income.

When you give to the Lord’s Cupboard Community Food Pantry, you are helping stock our shelves and put food on the table for families and individuals in Fort Dodge and Webster County who are coping with hunger and food insecurity. The emergency food assistance offered by the Lord’s Cupboard Community Pantry isn’t a permanent cure for hunger, but it can help nourish our neighbors and fellow citizens in need.

Monetary Donations

Monetary donations help us purchase food for pennies on the dollar from the Iowa Food Bank. We also purchase items from local stores. You can make an online donation, give through a check, or become a recurring donor to show your ongoing support. No matter how you give, know you are helping feed a hungry family in our community.

Monetary donations can be mailed

or dropped at:

127 N. 10th St

Fort Dodge, IA 50501
