MUSCATINE, Iowa-Starting Thursday, March 19, people 60 years of age and older, people who have a respiratory condition, or people with other underlying health conditions can receive food delivered to their homes at no cost. To sign yourself or a loved one up, call Muscatine Center for Social Action at 563-264-3278, the Salvation Army at 563-263-8272 or United Way of Muscatine at 563-263-5963. They deliver prepared meals Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Thursday’s delivery will consist of a bag of groceries for the week. You may sign up for all or partial food distribution. Prepared meal delivery will start at 11:30 a.m. and food bag delivery will start delivery at 1 p.m.
Each organization needs volunteers to help deliver. People interested in volunteering may call MCSA, Salvation Army, or UWM to sign up. Out of an abundance of caution, all volunteers will undergo a health screening.
The Salvation Army food pantry will remain open–please call ahead. The Salvation Army will also have bread outside for anyone to pick up during regular business hours. MCSA will have their food pantry open Tuesday and Thursday for bag pick up 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. Households will receive one bag per week, either delivered on Thursday or picked up at the food pantry. MCSA and the Salvation Army have suspended lunch programs at this time.
Please call to sign up to receive food, to volunteer, or with further questions at MCSA, Salvation Army or UWM.
