Food Pantry Grand Opening poster.docx



Coming soon, the “Rocket Food Pantry”!! This is a free service offered for anyone(students and family members) in the EBF school district. Our purpose is to strengthen our community and school district by providing nutritious food at no cost. This program will be confidential. The only thing we ask is for you to fill out a form for the Food Bank of Iowa the first time you come. We will then share the necessary information with the Food Bank of Iowa.  Our food pantry will be located at the EBF Baseball Concession Stand and will be opened every Wednesday from 3:30-5:30 or by special appointments. On Wednesdays, families are encouraged to come through and get the necessary items that they need. We will also be opened on Fridays from 3:00-3:30 with only pre-bagged items to be picked up. The products in the pantry will be provided by the Food Bank of Iowa from Des Moines. Also, American Home Finding from Ottumwa has graciously supplied the pantry with the necessary equipment to store and refrigerate many of our items. The first time you visit, you will be given a reusable tote to use for each of your visits. If you have any questions, please contact Lisa Strausser or Jessica Nollen at  Please watch the school website for our opening day! We are looking forward to meeting the needs of all of our families!
