Chickasaw County Food Pantry

Posted: Mon, June 11, 2012

The Chickasaw County Food Pantry (New Hampton) would like to thank the community for the generous donations they receive.  "Compared to other food pantries, we are very fortunate for all the donations, food & monetary, we receive.  Some communities are not as fortunate," expressed Nancy Wegner, Food Pantry Coordinator.  The food pantry is open on Friday mornings from 8:45 am to 11:45 am.    

As fortunate as the New Hampton Food Pantry is, they are always looking for donations.  There are several items that they can always use.  They include:  sugar, flour, crackers, packaged cookies, coffee, hygiene products, paper products (toilet paper, paper towels & Kleenex), and laundry detergent.  They seem to always have a need for these products.  The food pantry also has 3 freezers so they do accept meat product such as 1 lb packages of hamburger & hot dogs.  

Of course monetary donations are always welcome as well.  We ask that you remember the food pantry when donating in 2012.  To donate, you can drop stuff off on Friday mornings during the time they are open, or donation items can be dropped off at our office and we will get them to the food pantry.

Radon Program

Posted: Wed, January 6, 2016
Free meeting to help educate homeowners about risk of radon
 
An odorless, colorless gas could be causing a serious health hazard in your home.  The Chickasaw County Environmental Health Office and Chickasaw County ISU Extension will be hosting an informational program about radon at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 19 at the Extension Office, 104 E. Main St., New Hampton.

Behind smoking, radon is the leading cause of lung cancer.  The gas that occurs naturally under certain soil conditions is estimated to cause thousands of death each year.  Chickasaw County and the entire state of Iowa are considered at high risk for elevated radon levels.
A lung cancer survivor will speak about her experience with radon and information will be available on testing and reducing the risk in your home during this free program.

For more information about the meeting or about radon, please call the Chickasaw County Environmental Health Office at (641) 394-2406.
