Over 4,000 individuals will enjoy holiday meals this December due to the generosity of our sponsor MidwestOne Bank, our community, and the efforts of volunteers and staff at The Crisis Center of Johnson County.
2017 Project Holiday Volunteer Opportunities
- Iowa City Project Holiday Meal Distribution
- Coralville Project Holiday Meal Distribution
- Mobile Pantry Project Holiday Meal Distribution
The need for food in our community continues to grow and so do the prices at the supermarket. A $25 donation will purchase a complete holiday meal for a local family in need. Donations will be excepted through the end of the year.
Clients receive their choice of entrée, sides, vegetables, and a variety of other grocery items needed to prepare a holiday feast. We also offer diverse options by purchasing ethnically varied ingredients for all families to create a traditional holiday meal. Please register in-person at the food bank or call 319-351-0128 to make special arrangements.
Clients who register by Dec. 1 will have their first choice of entree. This year’s choices include:
- Whole turkey (serves 10-12)
- Boneless pork ham (serves 6-8)
- Whole chicken (serves 3-4)
- Turkey roast (serves 1-3)
- Meatless “turkey” roast (serves 3-4)
Food distribution will take place at The Crisis Center from Monday, Dec. 18 to Friday, Dec. 22. Distribution dates for our Mobile Pantry sites, Coralville, North Liberty are below. Questions? Call the food bank at 319-351-0128.
