Nutrition is the foundation for growth.
Hunger in Iowa
It's hard to imagine anyone going hungry in Iowa, where cornfields and soybeans blanket the landscape along two major interstates. But still, poverty and hunger are all too common in the lives of Iowans. Of the nearly 400,000 hungry Iowans, many are children and families.
One in five children in Iowa go to bed hungry every night.
To break the cycle of poverty and hunger, we must start with providing fortified meals to food pantries throughout the state.
When impoverished families feed their children meals that are both inexpensive and nutritious, children can grow stronger and learn better to achieve greater success. Families gain more time to improve their skills and find better employment, housing and care for their children.
Please unite with us to feed our neighbors in need and improve the state of Iowa. Click "Donate" above to make a contribution.
