Meals from the Heartland hosted the first annual Cedar Rapids Hunger Fight at the DoubleTree Convention Complex on May 4th-5th, 2018! Thanks to the hundreds and hundreds of volunteers who came together to package 155,088 meals! 128,000 meals were delivered to HACAP for distribution to hungry people in the Cedar Rapids community and surrounding areas. Iowans helping Iowans; it doesn't get much better than that!
As part of the fun, we hosted the Hy-Vee Cup, a two-box race, and the winner of this inaugural challenge was the Packing Princesses - CONGRATS!
Coming in a close second was the team of Hy-Vee Store Directors. No doubt they'll be looking for sweet revenge in 2019!
We have already begun planning for 2019 and can't wait to engage even more hearts and feed even more hungry people. See you soon!
