MUSCATINE, Iowa– Muscatine Center for Social Action (MCSA) announced they received a Community Continuity Grant from the Community Foundation of Greater Muscatine. They recieved $5,000 for their food program. The program includes a walk-up pantry on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a. m. to 12:00 p.m. at MCSA, 312 Iowa Avenue, as well as food bags delivered each Thursday.

In response to COVID-19, MCSA joined forces with the Salvation Army of Muscatine County and United Way of Muscatine to make sure community members have steady access to food during this time. MCSA fills bags to deliver on Thursdays to those who need supplemental nutrition and cannot make it safely to the store. The grant allows MCSA to continue purchasing food and staffing the program so it will remain stable.

MCSA Resource Development Officer Jenny Leirness reported: “our team at MCSA is so grateful to receive support from the Community Continuity Fund. During this wild time, we are happy to provide an extended version of our food program to make sure our neighbors don’t have to go without food. Because of our caring community, we now have the funds to sustain this program longer and continue serving those in need. We also want to extend a huge thank you to the Community Foundation for working to put together this fund; we are lucky to have such a great foundation here in Muscatine.”

For more information about the MCSA food program, please call 563-264-3278.
