Food Pantry to Open in Mason City Today

MASON CITY – The Food Bank for the Heartland will be opening its food pantry in Mason City today, November 17 at 3 p.m.

The pantry will be held at the First Baptist Church at 687 Prentiss St. in Mason City. It will operate as a drive-up service; food will be boxed up and loaded into vehicles, which means that those receiving food will not have to leave their cars, a blessing given current temperatures.

No documentation is required; anybody is welcome to receive the food bank’s offerings. The pantry will be open until the food is gone. Questions can be directed to (308) 293-6207 or (308) 870-0436.
