Meal distribution

volunteer opportunities to help the hungry around the worldMeals from the Heartland partners with organizations embedded in communities that face hunger on a daily basis. Meals are shipped out nationally and internationally by our distribution partner, Convoy of Hope, to on-the-ground organizations such as Many Hands for Haiti and Blessman Ministries, who are continually assessing and identifying needs of communities. Our meals often support and supplement other programs such as teaching sustainable agriculture practices, education, healthcare and more.

Our meals are also used for disaster relief, providing nutrition and hope in the midst of epidemics and natural disasters that impact entire communities. For example, Meals from the Heartland provided nearly 11 million meals to those in need in Texas, Florida, the British Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, Turks and Caicos, and Mexico as a result of the 2017 natural disasters in those areas.  View 2017 Annual Report to learn more about where our meals are distributed.

donate to help feed the hungryLocally, we partner with food banks that are taking action to feed the hungry in Iowa, providing nourishment and support to individuals and families in need. These organizations include the Food Bank of Iowa and the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) food pantry network whereby we’ve joined together to create Unite2Feed, a collaborative meal packaging effort, as well as dozens of church-affiliated food pantries. In 2017 alone, more than 1 million meals were distributed across the state of Iowa.
