The Southwest Iowa COVID-19 Response Fund granted funds to Cass County Public Health for the purpose of purchasing and delivering food to self-isolating individuals due to COVID-19.

“We have a number of volunteers and organizations partnering together to make sure all people who are isolating at home in Cass County will have access to food and food delivery. Our main goal is to keep everyone home and fed, no matter the income level,” commented Cass County Public Health Director Beth Olsen.

Individuals should contact Cass County Public Health Monday through Friday at 712-243-7443 with questions or for grocery and delivery needs.

“Some people may be able to pay in full for their groceries, but they need help with ordering and delivery. Or, some people may be able to only pay for a portion of their grocery needs. We’re happy to help in any way that we can,” said Olsen. “We want to thank all of the community members who have been already helping out, and we’re thankful for this grant that will support Cass County residents.”

The Southwest Iowa COVID-19 Response Fund is a partnership between the Iowa West Foundation, Pottawattamie County Community Foundation, and Council Bluffs Schools Foundation.
