The Open Hands Food Pantry is a ministry of Cedar Hills Community Church, serving residents of Eastern Iowa.


Mondays 5-6pm
Wednesdays 10am-12pm
Fridays – CLOSED


There are no income requirements to visit our pantry. If you’re in need of food, you are welcome.  You can visit once per calendar month.


Food provided is about 3 days worth and is based on family size.  We are blessed with a great partnership with local stores like Hy-Vee who regularly donate delicious bread and baked goods to our pantry.  Many donations also come from within the Cedar Hills congregation, neighboring churches and our partnerships with the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts.

UPDATE: Due to COVID-19, the pantry now uses a drive-up system.  Pull into the circle drive from the south and we will meet you at your car to check you in. Volunteers will then bring the food to your car. Please do not get out of your car.


Interested in volunteering? The pantry is always in need of help to pack grocery bags, assist with the check-in process, and also pick up larger shipments of food when they become available.  If this is something that interests you, please contact the office.
