Monthly Food Assistance
The Mobile Pantry Program provides monthly grocery assistance to residents of underserved and/or rural mobile home parks in Johnson County. The Mobile Pantry offers a variety of perishable and non-perishable food items, as well as baby and household items. Clients may choose the items that work best for their family, with some limits based on household size.
What to Expect When You Visit
All of the Mobile Pantry services are provided on a first come, first served basis. There may be a wait to choose your food, so we ask for your patience and understanding.
All families who are new must be interviewed on their first visit before receiving services from the Mobile Pantry. On your first visit, we need to gather some basic information about your family – please see the “What to Bring On Your First Visit” section below.
What to Bring On Your First Visit
If it is your first time receiving food assistance through The Crisis Center, please arrive at least 30 minutes before the end of pantry hours so that we have time to collect some basic information about your household. New family interviews usually last between 15 and 20 minutes.
Some of the organizations that provide funding to The Crisis Center require us to report basic information about the people we serve. This information does NOT affect the amount of food you receive.
On your first visit, please be prepared to give the following information:
- Your full address
- Full names and birthdates for everyone in your household
- Income and benefits received by everyone who lives with you
After your first visit, you will usually only be asked to give your name in order to receive food. It’s important to update your family records from time to time, so you may be asked once or twice per year to confirm your information.
Inclement weather policy: The Mobile Pantry will be closed when the Iowa City Community School District cancels school due to snowy or icy conditions. The Mobile Pantry will remain open during extreme cold, unless otherwise noted on The Crisis Center’s website. Individuals can receive emergency food assistance by calling (319) 351-0128.
