Lansing Iowa Food Trust (LIFT) has announced that it has received a $1,500 grant from ITC Midwest to be used to support food insecurity in eastern Allamakee County. Specifically, the grant will be used to help not only the truly poor, but the working poor, the elderly poor and anyone who has a need. Through the ITC Charitable Giving Program, ITC Midwest makes contributions to local nonprofits as part of the company’s commitment to the many communities it serves. ITC supports qualified nonprofit organizations whose programs and projects emphasize the company’s focus on education, environmental stewardship, social services, and health and wellness.

“ITC Midwest is pleased to present this check to Lansing Iowa Food Trust, an organization that provides essential support to those in need in the Lansing community,” said ITC Midwest Area Local Government and Community Affairs Director Lori Broghammer. “We appreciate the important work this organization does.”

The Lansing Iowa Food Trust (LIFT) is a local food bank nestled in Lansing, a town of 1,000 people. LIFT was formed in October 2018 with the simple goal of providing stability for anyone, or any family, with food insecurity meeting the low-income guidelines provided by the Federal Government. Eligible clients shop for food used to feed themselves and/or family with the assistance of volunteers. LIFT was established through an Allamakee Community Foundation Grant through Northeast Iowa Food Bank, and the continuance of the program is currently possible by donations and grants.
