Fondy Food Pantry Receives Meals From Alliant

More than 150 food pantries in Iowa and Wisconsin received over 73,500 meals as Alliant Energy and its customers teamed up to support local families in need. Throughout March and April, Alliant Energy provided three meals to a food pantry for each customer who enrolled in My Account, the company’s online account management tool.

“We want to send a huge thank you to our customers for signing up for My Account to help their neighbors and families in need,” said Julie Bauer, executive director of Alliant Energy’s Foundation. “We’re living our purpose to serve customers and build strong communities by supporting the hard work of our food pantry partners across our service area and providing an easy tool for customers to use with My Account.”

Over 24,500 customers contributed to support local food pantries, resulting in a nearly $25,000 donation from Alliant Energy to local food pantries. Each dollar donated to a food pantry buys approximately three meals.

“We want to thank Alliant Energy for their recent promotion and donation,” said Major Tom McDowell, Rock County Coordinator for the Salvation Army. “This gift comes at a significant time, as we prepare to operate in new ways with our food distribution. We also thank Alliant Energy’s customers for making this gift possible.”
