LIFT (Lansing Iowa Food Trust) resumes in-person distribution in June

Street repair currently limiting access from north

Beginning Wednesday, June 1 and taking place each Wednesday after that, LIFT (Lansing Iowa Food Trust) will resume pre-COVID food distribution protocols from 4-6 p.m. each Wednesday at its 220 South 3rd Street location in Lansing. Clients will work with a volunteer at the facility  as they select their own food items, following the posted guidelines.

Clients are encouraged to bring their own boxes and bags to carry items. Special needs will be accommodated if items are available. LIFT will no longer have prepackaged boxes or drive-through service.

LIFT allows one shopper per household to select food. Children will not be allowed in the building while clients are shopping. Clients will be limited to four people at a time in the store during the distribution hours.

Participants should enter at the side door to check in and exit on the ramp side of the building. Clients should pull their cars up to the end of the ramp to load their own commodities. LIFT welcomes all Allamakee County residents who qualify for food assistance. Clients may pick up food every other week.

Because of street repair, access from the north is currently limited. Clients should take South Front Street past the ball diamond and Clear Creek Park. Turn west on Valley Street and proceed to South 4th Street. Travel north on South 4th Street about two blocks and the LIFT building will be to the east off South 3rd Street.
