Annual Foundation Food Drive

The Waukee Foundation Food Drive has been driving donations for the Waukee Area Christian Food Pantry for the last 13 years. The demographics of our community are changing, as are the needs of our community. The food pantry feeds an average of 200 families each month and nearly 10% of families in Dallas County are food insecure.

Donations can be dropped off at any district school building location. Monetary donation are always welcomed, as the food bank can stretch those dollars much further than we can in the stores. You can make monetary donations by writing a check to the Waukee Area Christian Food Pantry or by donating online. Donated items will be picked up from school buildings on Friday, November 16.
