What: Cass County COVID-19 Mobile Food For All supplies and delivers food to anyone in Cass County who needs the assistance due to COVID-19.
 
When: The program is designed to help people stay safe and social distance by offering food delivery to homes across Cass County, as well as contactless pickup from 3:30-5:30 PM in Atlantic, usually on Mondays. Once registered, you will receive food delivery or pickup weekly, until you cancel the service, or the program runs out of funding.

Who: Cass County COVID-19 Mobile Food For All is available to anyone in Cass County who needs the assistance. There are no requirements to qualify for the program. A household member does not have to be sick with COVID to register for this program, nor are there any financial qualifications for the program. In 2020, the program was found to have been particularly beneficial when a household was under quarantine.
 
How: Cass County COVID-19 Mobile Food For All 2021 is made possible by a $40,000 grant that Cass County received from the Iowa Economic Development Authority. The county is partnering with the Cass County Local Food Policy Council, Cass County Public Health, Cass County ISU Extension, and SWITA to operate the program. Many other businesses and volunteers also contribute to make this program possible.
 
Cost: The program is free to everyone in Cass County, but there is an option for program participants and community members to make financial contributions to the program. Checks can be mailed to the Cass County Auditor’s Office at 5 West 7th St, Atlantic, IA 50022 with “COVID Mobile Food” in the memo.
