SHARE food distribution takes place one Saturday a month. This opportunity to save money on food is available to everyone and is not a low-income program.
What is SHARE?
SHARE Iowa is an organization that offers tasty, nutritious grocery packages at half the retail cost in exchange for two hours of volunteer community service in your community. Choosing where you volunteer is up to you - any good deed qualifies!
Who can participate?
Anyone who eats can participate. You can purchase as many packages of food as you like, as long as you have volunteered at least two hours of your time prior to your food pick-up date.
What are the food packages like?
The Best Value Package varies from month to month, but it always contains fresh fruits, vegetables and meat. The meat is usually frozen. The are also fruit & veggie packages, meat only packages, and other types of foods.
