The 14th Annual Hunger Fight Was a Success!
The 14th Annual Hunger Fight, held August 30 through September 4 was a HUGE SUCCESS thanks to 842 volunteers! Not only were we able to package our goal of 2 million bulk meals (7 truck loads!), we were even able to fund all the ingredients we used thanks to all the very generous donations! Even though we weren’t able to hold this Annual Hunger Fight at Hy-Vee Hall downtown, our caring community showed up to support our mission! These meals will go be used to feed children in Burkina Faso, Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Haiti.
Hy-Vee Reusable Bag Program – New Location in September
During the month of September, we will receive a $1 donation from each purchase of the $2.50 reusable red “My Heart” Bag at the Hy-Vee store located at 4100 University Ave. in Des Moines. Keep plastic bags out of our landfills by using this awesome reusable bag!
