Did you know that there is a food pantry in the IMU where students can access food and personal hygiene items? We are partnering with the Food Pantry at Iowa for the second year to sponsor the On Iowa! Food Drive.  We will be collecting unopened, non-perishable food items for the Food Pantry throughout the week. You can either drop off your items when you check-in to the On Iowa! program in the 2nd floor Ballroom in the IMU or you can visit our volunteers at the Dodge Street HyVee Tuesday-Thursday (10AM-4PM). Specific needs include:

  • Pasta, rice, and other grains
  • Gluten-free and allergy-friendly products
  • Fruit (canned or dried)
  • Condiments
  • Baking items (oil, sugar, flour, etc.)
  • Cereal and oatmeal
  • Non-dairy milk alternatives
  • Peanut butter
  • Snack foods (crackers, granola bars, trail mix)
  • Hearty soups
