BackPack Program: Food for Kids

“Mobile Pantry Program” is a food pantry on wheels! The Food Bank of Siouxland brings thousands of pounds of food to a host location for families and individuals to take home. Our focus is serving in all counties in our area that are underserved – meaning that through the Mobile Pantry Program: Food to You, all of our counties will receive the pounds of food needed to provide adequate nutrition to families in our Siouxland community.


This program is made possible thanks to the support of many individuals and organizations who help fund the program and who volunteer their time to serve those in need.

Mobile School Pantry: Food for Families

School pantries are located on school grounds, intended to provide a more readily accessible source of food assistance to food insecure students and their families. In many communities, the school is a hub of activity and a resource center for families. Because of the close relationship between students and faculty, school personnel frequently become aware of challenges within the family while dealing with student issues.


A school pantry provides a safe, supportive way to help students and their families through a crisis, which in turn helps the child become more successful in school. A snapshot:

  • The Food Bank of Siouxland provides the product and structure for Mobile School Pantry Program.
  • Mobile School Pantries are stocked with nutritious foods, similar to a traditional pantry distribution.
  • The Mobile School Pantries ensure students have the food they need to help them grow and thrive, which furthers learning.
