Two Buena Vista County Food Bank of Iowa partners received grants totaling over 14-thousand 380 dollars in April to help meet increased need due to the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The grants went to Upper Des Moines Opportunity of Buena Vista County and St. Mark Lutheran Friends With Food. The funds will help the local pantries purchase and distribute food in the county.

The grants are made possible by CARES Act funding, and were administered by the Iowa Food Bank Association. The organization is made up of the six food banks that serve every Iowa county, including Food Bank of Iowa.
