First-Time Visit Information

Please arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing so we can gather family information in a 15-20 minute first-time client interview.

We will ask you for your address and the names, birth dates, income, and received benefits* of everyone who lives with you. (*This information does NOT impact the amount or kind of food you will receive.)

After your first visit, you will only need to give us your name to receive assistance during future visits.

Inclement weather policy: The Mobile Pantry will be closed when the Iowa City Community School District cancels school due to inclement weather conditions. The Mobile Pantry may close or cancel due to severe weather or tornado warnings. The Mobile Pantry will remain open during extreme cold, unless otherwise noted on CommUnity’s website.
