Food With Love Project

Food with Love is an emergency food relief program that matches community need with professional chefs and hospitality experts that are looking for ways to help while their restaurants are currently closed. Food insecurity and hunger relief become problems that are more acute for communities in times of crisis and economic uncertainty. With the available talent and the unquestionable need, this program is a way to help both in our community.

Resources and Updates for Area Schools

Gov. Kim Reynolds and the Iowa Department of Education announced earlier in April that all school districts and nonpublic schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year and will continue to offer continuous learning to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. While this change has arrived quickly and with little time to make accommodations, many school districts are providing resources for this transition such as online learning assistance, technology loans, as well as meals for kids.
