Meet Gabbie from Australia.  Gabbie is from Australia and is currently working as an au pair in Iowa. She is one of our regular shop volunteers!

What draws you to volunteering with Feed Iowa First?

“I just enjoy it…It’s a culture thing. I hadn’t done a lot of volunteer work before. Coming to America and experiencing something and seeing an organization like this is…it’s really exciting. It’s a new learning experience. I’m always up for a new challenge, and I feel like this is something I really enjoy in terms of community and people.”




Feed Iowa First is an all-volunteer organization.   Our mission to combat food insecurity would not be possible without the generous support of the community.   While farming is essential work, it is also hard work.  Over 200 volunteers from all walks of life collectively invest thousands of hours of service to make our mission a success.


If you’re interested in becoming involved, please join us for recurring shop hours on Tuesday’s from 4pm-6pm at 1506 10th Street SE 52401!


Feed Iowa First is always looking for volunteers with specialized skill sets to help support and grow our organization.  If you have education and/or experience in farming, nonprofit leadership, fundraising, event management, public relations, volunteer management or other skills,  please reach out. We are waiting for you!
