Churches United of the Quad City Area is pleased to accept a generous $2,000 grant award from Iowa 80 Group, Inc.

Funds will be used to assist in covering general operating costs that help Churches United keep food on the table at our 3 hot meal sites and on the shelves at 26 food pantries in the Iowa and Illinois Quad Cities.

Celebrate the 4th and help feed the hungry by bringing donations of nonperishable food items to the annual Bettendorf parade and festival. Volunteers and staff at Churches United of the Quad City Area will be accepting donations along the parade route and during the festival under our tent located at Spruce Hills Drive and Middle Road. All food collected will go directly to the 26 food pantries and 3 hot meal sites operated by Churches United in the Quad Cities.

Churches United of the Quad City Area gratefully accepts a $15,000 grant award from the Doris & Victor Day Foundation.

This grant award will be used specifically to purchase supplies for 26 food pantries and three meal sites and fund direct services at Winnie’s Place, our emergency shelter for women, without or without children, who are homeless and/or survivors of domestic violence.

Cheer on the Hawkeyes and Cyclones, grab a tasty plate of tailgate barbeque, and help Churches United of the Quad City Area raise funds to feed the hungry at Kick Out Hunger on Saturday, Sept. 9th. Our fun and friend-raising event kicks off 30 minutes before the televised game time. Watch the game and enjoy tail gate party activities at the Ken Anderson Academic All-America Club overlooking Lindberg Stadium at the Knowlton Outdoor Athletic Complex on the Augustana College campus.

Over 1 million pounds of food were distributed in 2016 to more than 170,000 individuals at Churches United of the Quad Cities’ 25 free food pantries and three hot meal sites in Iowa and Illinois.

That’s nearly 3 percent of the greater Quad City Area population!
