2019 Annual Hunger Fight (Aug. 28-31)

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Support Volunteer registrations open July 15th and Packager registrations open August 1st.  Be sure to mark your calendar and come back to visit!

The 12th Annual Meals from the Heartland Hunger Fight is fast approaching and we couldn’t be more excited!  It’s truly a sight to behold when thousands of central Iowans and friends from all over come together over a 4-day period of time to package millions of meals to feed hungry people here in Iowa, throughout the U.S., and around the world.  You don’t want to miss it!

To kick off the festivities, we will once again be hosting the One Step Challenge on Tuesday, August 27th at Hy-Vee Hall where teams of 10 will compete to see which team can package two boxes the fastest!  Our friends from Wells Fargo are eager to defend their crown!

Annual Hunger Fight sponsors are needed to help us fund the millions and millions of meals.  Please download AHF Sponsorships to learn more or contact Mike Schneider at 515-473-9530 to discuss in more detail.  Thank you in advance for your consideration.
