NL Community Pantry welcomes Iowa State Senators Wahls and Kinney Feb. 28

NORTH LIBERTY– Iowa State Senators Zach Wahls and Kevin Kinney will visit the North Liberty Community Pantry Friday, Feb. 28, at 3 p.m.
The senators will tour the facility and talk with pantry staff about services, the recent increase in pantry traffic, and news surrounding area mobile home residents. Zach Wahls has been a vocal advocate for tenants’ rights, attending and speaking at rallies for Golf View Mobile Home Park last summer.
Wahls’ and Kinney’s visit follows a large year of growth. In 2019, North Liberty Community Pantry distributed 427,337 pounds of food, a 21 percent increase from the previous year. The visit also happens between two large, annual distributions; the Toiletry Distribution and the Socks and Underwear Distribution.
