2020 Annual Hunger Fight (Sep. 1-5)


IMPORTANT NOTE: Packager registration opens August 1 and Support Volunteer registrations opens on July 15th!

The 13th 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 4 days 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 Hy-Vee One Step Challenge on Tuesday, September 1st at Hy-Vee Hall where teams of 10 will compete to see which team can package two boxes the fastest!  Here’s hoping our friends from the Drake Women’s Basketball team will be back to defend their crown!

Annual Hunger Fight sponsors are needed to help us fund the millions of meals we will package. This is a great way to promote your brand and team-building!
