CommUnity Food Pantry at Pepperwood Plaza will make every effort to be open during normal hours in all weather conditions. We may have to provide emergency, bagged food if severe weather makes it impossible for enough staff and volunteers to come in. We will close the Food Pantry and stop our services only when staff cannot safely make it to the Food Pantry. Closures will be listed on the homepage of our website, KCRG-TV and KGAN-TV. You can also call 319-351-0128 to find out our services during bad weather.
