Planning for a Hunger-Free Iowa

    November 14, 2017

     

    The Community Foundation is dedicated to improving the organizational governance and management of nonprofit organizations in our community. We were pleased to award a Capacity Building Grant to support the Food Bank of Iowa's strategic planning. 

    Food Bank of Iowa was entering a new era, under new management and ready to make a significant impact on how the issue of hunger is addressed in the service area. They were operating under an outdated strategic plan. Support from the Community Foundation for comprehensive strategic planning enabled Food Bank of Iowa to refine and refocus on the mission of the organization, putting goals and strategies into place which will make a difference in the lives of thousands of Iowans struggling with hunger.
