The 2nd Annual Meals from the Heartland Cedar Rapids Hunger Fight is now one for the ages! Our goal this year was to package 300,000 meals, and we’re proud to announce we packaged 290,304 meals. Nearly 200,000 of these meals were delivered to HACAP to be distributed to hungry Iowans in Cedar Rapids and surrounding communities. This was a fantastic effort by the over 800 volunteers who gave of their time, treasure, and talent.
Congratulations to the Hy-Vee Assistant Directors who won the One Step Challenge two-box race. They out-dueled 7 other teams to take home the coveted Hy-Vee Cup. We hear they’re already strategizing on how they can improve their time for next year!
A very special thanks to our Presenting Sponsor, Hy-Vee, and all they do to support our ongoing mission. We are forever grateful for their generosity.
And thank you to the following for their support of our Cedar Rapids Hunger Fight!
We look forward to seeing you all next year at this fun, community-wide event.
