For information on the Walnut Hills Garden of Faith, Food, and Learning, contact Chairperson Jean Swenson at

If you love to garden and are looking for a way to serve, Clive Community Services would love for you to take a plot at the Walnut Hills Garden of Faith, Food, and Learning and grow food for our pantry! Our donations of traditional American garden products are very strong, but international garden offerings would be welcome. Information would be provided on what type of crops to plant along with care and harvest instructions. This would be a meaningful experience through which you would experience fellowship with your fellow gardeners, many of whom are immigrants. Please contact Linda for more information.

Donations of Food, Clothing or Supplies:

All donations are welcome. We have an ongoing need for non-expired food items for our clients, including shelf-stable items and refrigerated and frozen goods.
We also provide a variety of personal care items for our clients, including (but not limited to) toilet paper, soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, mouthwash, floss, razors, shaving cream, liquid dish soap, laundry detergent, paper towels, and tissues. In addition, we stock baby supplies including diapers, wipes, baby food, and formula. We also have a clothing room for new and used clothing items including shoes, socks, underwear, coats, winter hats and mittens/gloves.

Please contact for more information or visit our Item of the Month page for dropoff sites.
