Mission & Vision
The Coralville Community Food Pantry's mission is to partner with the Coralville community to provide hope and nourishment for our neighbors during times of need. Our vision is to transform Coralville into a hunger-free community.
We believe that no child or adult in our community should have to worry about where their next meal will come from. Individuals and families living in Coralville with unmet food needs can visit the pantry up to once a week to select from an array high-quality food and personal care items that best suit their unique needs.
Established in 2009 by a coalition of local churches, the pantry now draws broad support from countless businesses, schools, community groups, and individuals; all pouring in their time, talents, and resources to help meet the need. Thanks to the generous support of our local community, we were able to provide hope to more than 2,500 Coralville residents in the last year.
The fight against hunger requires a collective effort. With your help, we can transform Coralville into a hunger-free community.
