The Helping Hand Food Pantry Expansion Project

The Helping Hand and ICYF have partnered together to expand the current food pantry area at The Helping Hand in order to provide more food for Indianola and all of Warren County.

The current food pantry at The Helping Hand is 204 square feet. This expansion will give them ten times the space! The Helping Hand serves all of Warren County, and provides one week’s worth of food every two months for those in need. In 2017, more than 800 families were served, and nearly 43,000 items were provided.

The Indianola Community Youth Foundation exists to give back
to the Indianola youth and community.

You can donate quickly and easily online through PayPal, by attending one of our fundraisers
throughout the year, or mailing a check to the ICYF address
(PO Box 423, Indianola, IA 50125).

EAT WELL, PLAY WELL

ICYF partnered with Jennifer DeWall at Nutrition in Motion last year to create free sports-specific nutrition plans for the Indianola community. To help promote healthy eating habits, and good character, we worked with Molly Rogalla and created banners to be rotated around at the local elementary schools featuring Indianola High School seniors. These seniors were nominated by their coaches as people who demonstrate excellent leadership skills and are great teammates.

To build on Indianola’s reputation as a community committed to its youth by providing opportunities for kids to develop their personal best, make good choices, model positive behaviors, and build leadership skills.
