YOU did it, Eastern Iowa! We had an awesome first annual Cedar Rapids Hunger Fight, thanks to each of you who gave of your precious time, treasure and talent. 155,088 meals are now packed and ready to provide nutrition to Iowans who need it most. In fact, 128,000 meals stayed with Hawkeye Area Community Action Program, Inc. and the rest will be distributed to the Cedar Rapids area upon request. Iowans helping Iowans; doesn't get much better than that! ❤
But our work is not done, folks. The need is huge in Iowa and around the world.

Big thanks to Joel O'Dell for representing Meals from the Heartland at the Blessman International Gala, sharing how we are better together to fight hunger and bring hope to the hopeless.
@blessmaninternational is one of our international partners with programs that utilize the meals that YOU help package. Essential meals that reach many children and families in South Africa, thanks to compassionate Iowans (like you!) taking action in the fight against hunger. ❤ #thankYOU#beahungerfighter#bettertogether
This week marked the 8th year the Iowa FFA Leadership Conference has had Meals from the Heartland as their service project. In total, we've packed over 1.5 million meals for hungry Iowans and those in need all over the world! 🌍 This year, we packaged 150,000 meals with the help of 1,000 eager teenagers and their advisors. Awesome job! 👏👏 We offer each chapter to take a box of Hearty Pack meals and a box of mac-and-cheese meals back to their local food pantries to help the hungry in their communities. ❤ Thanks to ALL who participated! #hungerfighters#differencemakers#thankyouFFA
