River Bend Foodbank has a garden!
Thanks to our "Garden Club" volunteers for braving the heat and bugs to help us plant, to our gardener Bob Jurgensen for his time and services tilling the soil, and to the Corn Crib Nursery, Teske Pet & Garden, and Wallaces Garden Center for your generous donations. The produce grown in the garden, which includes tomatoes, peppers, and cucumbers, will be given to our agencies to distribute to their clients. If you are interested in joining our "Garden Club" (no expertise required!), please give us a call at (563) 345-9490
Our new address is
4010 KIMMEL DRIVE
DAVENPORT, IOWA 52802
We have a new phone number, too!
Although we have moved from Illinois to Iowa, our service area remains the same—17 counties in Illinois and 5 counties in Iowa.
The Great American Milk Drive
River Bend Foodbank is always in need of items, but one that is rarely donated is milk. If you donate to The Great American Milk Drive the Foodbank receives milk coupons to give to families in our service area. To donate, please visit https://milklife.com/give.
