Who We Are
We are a food pantry providing supplemental food for those in need in Warren County, Iowa. We are open to anyone in our county who meets our simple requirements. Currently all monies received are used to buy foods such as dairy, meats, fresh produce and other items not donated or purchased from the area food bank.
This was a dream started by our director, Alice J. Cooper Brito , a few years ago. She started alone by collecting bottles and cans to raise money to buy food and helped 5-10 families per month.
When her church was able to buy a building they gave her a small room to use. After receiving more donations to help her buy food, she was then able to help about 20 families a month.
More donations came in, and people volunteered to help. We currently are serving approximately 85 families and 125 individuals per month.
The need is still growing. At this point we are not even meeting 1% of those whose are food insecure.
GEF Food Pantry is now operating as part of GEF Ministries.
