St. Andrew Presbyterian Church is a partner agency with the Hawkeye Area Community Action Program (HACAP). Once a month, we offer free food to the community. The food is provided by HACAP and the church’s Lettuce Feed Others community garden. Selection varies from month to month, but usually includes staples like cereal, bread, rice, beans, soup, baking items, vegetables, canned meat, and baked goods. Other items that are available on a periodic basis are diapers, baby wipes, frozen meat, and cheese.
The food is available from 3 to 7 p.m., usually during the fourth Wednesday of the month. For the rest of 2023, the schedule is:
- June 28
- July 26
- August 24
- September 27
- October 26
- November 23
The food is available to anyone who needs it. You do not need to live in Iowa City or have any affiliation with St. Andrew to receive the food. Shoppers will be asked to fill out a brief form that asks for name, address, number in household, and a signature. These forms are used for tracking the number of people we serve. The total served each month is reported to HACAP. The forms are available in English and Spanish.
