Meals from the Heartland

Hunger isn’t just in the lives of children and families far away. Too many Iowans go to bed and wake up hungry every day. A study by Feeding America reports:

  • 1 in 8 Iowans struggle with hunger

  • 1 in 6 Iowa children don’t have enough to eat

  • Nearly 400,000 Iowans live at or below poverty level

 Here’s what you can do about this…

  • Join us Saturday, June 1 for the Meals from the Heartland Hunger Fight. This is a fun meal packing event and there are two shifts to choose from: 11:00am-noon, or 12:30pm-1:30pm. Sign up at this link here or at the display in the Gathering Place (we will add you to the online sign-up)

  • Donate to pay for ingredients. Each meal costs 20 cents, and we are packing at least 30,000 meals. Use the offering envelope at the display in the Gathering Place.

Meals from the Heartland ships food all over the world and in the USA. The Taco Mac meals that we pack will be distributed to domestic agencies and food banks, including our local NE Iowa Food Bank. In 2018 alone, more than 600,000 meals were distributed across the state of Iowa.

Thank you for your support. Together, we can make a difference in our community, our nation, and the world.
