The Depot Outlet has presented the Decorah Community Food Pantry with a check for $2,850.
The Community Food Pantry, currently located in the First Lutheran Church, was founded in 1996 to provide food, personal care, and household supplies to a growing number of people in the community who lacked these resources. The pantry currently serves individuals and families from a wide range of counties and communities across northeastern Iowa. The Food Pantry is an Iowa non-profit corporation.

The Depot Outlet recycles donated clothing and small household goods, selling them to area consumers, then contributing funds to community and church organizations throughout Winneshiek County.
