Open Cupboard food pantry benefits from the unique relationship between our local food bank in Sioux City and the support of community churches, businesses, and leaders of Monona and Woodbury Counties. We secure food from local churches, retailers, farmers, individual donors, and the Food Bank from Siouxland Inc. We hope that all ten towns will organize food drives to keep Open Cupboard food pantry filled and operational throughout the year. For every $1 donated to the Open Cupboard food pantry we are able to acquire 13 pounds worth of food – a remarkable return on your investment in our community.

Your donation will help our efforts, whether it is food, time or money.

Call Joann Nielson at 712-880-6171 or visit us at 209 N 6th Street, Mapleton, IA 51034 or email:
