Calling all cycling aficionados! Are you ready to log some Miles for the Heartland and help feed hungry people all over the world?
This September, often referred to as Hunger Action Month, you can join others and seek pledges for every mile ridden, accumulate those donations, and present them to Meals from the Heartland at a Miles for the Heartland celebration on Thursday, October 11, at The Hall in West Des Moines.

It's always a great day when someone shows up with a check in hand! Thanks to @iowarealtors (and Larry Pickering for delivering) for their check that will fund 5,000 meals! That will go a long way in feeding the hungry here in Iowa, throughout the U.S. and around the world. Thank you for your generosity! #beahungerfighter#bettertogether
When you pull into the parking lot and it's full of construction trucks, you think something must be wrong with the building! Then...you find a team of dedicated supporters from Wolf Construction Services. 😊 Thanks to Brandon, Reid and Jon for carving time out of your very busy day to help feed hungry people all around the world! 🖒🖒

We had an amazing time with our friends at the @iowaspeedway, packing meals to change lives. Nothing beats seeing the light in volunteers' eyes as they experience the simple act of caring for those in need. #beahungerfighter#bettertogether

Friends, here's another simple way to include the fight against hunger in your daily life! During the month of July, every Giving Bag sold at Fresh Thyme in West Des Moines will generate a $1 donation to support Meals from the Heartland. Buy a bag for a friend! 🍅🍓🍏 #thankYOUfreshthyme#beahungerfighter#bettertogether
Some days start in the dumpster, but end in a smile...and a new volunteer. 😊
Mike Frandsen, on staff at Meals from the Heartland, put the words "love your neighbor" into action when he dumpster dived for a lost set of keys. Not only was the neighbor grateful, they decided to join the fight against hunger because of it! #payitforward#loveyourneighbor
Calling all Downtown Des Moines Farmer's Market attendees: be sure to stop by and listen to Make DSM Loud, a group of hobbyist musicians who play to inspire, entertain and give back to the community! They're performing tomorrow, June 30, during the market and all proceeds will be donated to Meals from the Heartland. We have the BEST community of supporters! 😊 🎵🎶🎹🎸
Around the world, millions of families – nearly 800 million people – don’t have enough to eat. We aren't ok with that, and we know you aren't either. That's why we keep packing; every meal is a sliver of hope. And every box of Hy-Vee One Step Cereals funds one meal. It really is simple to #beahungerfighter. #thankYOUonestep#BuyOneFundOne
