Register to help Van & Bonnie package meals for Meals from the Heartland!
This event will take place on March 3rd from 5:00am-9:00am. You can register HERE for your shift or to make a donation!
Here's some information about the impact you'll make:
When you join us for a 2-hour shift at Meals from the Heartland, you’ll package over 400 individual meals. Each of these meals will be a gift to those who receive them. It may be the only food someone eats one day, or simply one less expense to worry about during a time of distress. By packaging with us, you will change lives around the world.
Do you know about Hunger in Iowa?
Did you know that 1 in 8 Iowans struggle with hunger? A portion of Meals from the Heartland meals feed people in need right here in our state. Meals from the Heartland partners with area food banks to ensure nutritious, vitamin-packed meals make it into the hands of hungry Iowans. In 2016, nearly 1 million meals went to Iowan food pantries.
Donate to Meals from the Heartland
Each volunteer will package about $50 worth of ingredients in a 2-hour volunteer shift at Meals from the Heartland. The nonprofit must purchase all of the ingredients to make meals. Ingredients are not donated, and the costs add up! If you donate just $20, you can fund 100 meals.
