About Us

The mission of the IFBA is to support the Feeding America food banks and their affiliates serving Iowa in their work to ensure that sufficient food is accessible to all.

The Iowa Food Bank Association (IFBA) is a collaboration of Feeding America food banks and affiliates that serve each of Iowa’s 99 counties. Together, the food banks serve over 1,200 non-profit organizations serving children, adults, veterans, and seniors. These organizations include food pantries, emergency meal sites, congregational meal sites, emergency shelters, and other sites that provide food to clients.

IFBA works to support partner food banks in the areas of:

  • Advocacy
  • Food and Fund Raising
  • Disaster Relief
  • Food Assistance Outreach
  • Operations

IFBA believes that collaborative efforts allow for the food banks to become more efficient and effective in serving hungry Iowans.
