Food banks hopeful Iowa lawmakers will approve funding

May 2, 2013 | 0 comments

A drop in federal donations has left Iowa food banks low on supplies and hopeful the Legislature will approve funding for the organizations.

Food bank officials say U.S. Department of Agriculture donations to organizations in Iowa and part of Nebraska are more than 1 million pounds less than in previous years.

Linda Scheid, executive director of Siouxland Food Bank in Sioux City, says their supplies are "critically low." Her food bank serves 11 counties, including three in Nebraska.

The Iowa Senate has approved a bill the provides $2 million to the Iowa Food Bank Association, but some Republicans oppose the funding.

Boone Sen. Jerry Behn says the state shouldn't be in the grocery business.

Last year, Republican Gov. Terry Branstad vetoed a bill including $500,000 in aid to food banks.
