Local and Non-Profit

Council Bluffs Pantry Association

School is out for the Summer!!!
Super exciting for many families, but to others, the fear of how to provide two extra meals a day for their children can be overwhelming. This is when our local food pantries see a huge increase in the number of families we serve, yet community donations and food drives decrease. Please consider helping us help the community.




Mission Statement

The COUNCIL BLUFFS PANTRY ASSOCIATION is a collaboration of local non-profit organizations that work together to help feed, clothe, provide temporary housing,
and essential items for thousands of individuals each year. We all strive to help as many people as possible, while ensuring the system is not being abused.
As the needs in the community rises, more and more people are seeking help. God wants us to feed the hungry and clothe the naked.
With your prayers and support, we can continue to do this.

Hunger doesn't take a summer break....









The Council Bluffs Pantry Association needs the support of the community. We are in continuous need of food and funding.

We hope that your business, church, organization, or school would consider supporting our organization.


What can you do to help:

  • organize a food drive or fundraiser
  • take up a donation at your next meeting or gathering
  • share our information with others
  • keep us in your thoughts and prayers

When grocery shopping, add a few extra items to your list. 

Make it a competition! 
What's better than a little friendly rivalry, while benefiting the community. 

No Time?? 
Your $10 donation can feed a family for an entire week!!




Thank You!!!
