Help Us Feed 5 Million at the Annual Hunger Fight

Help us package 5 million meals in just 4 days.

This is more than we typically package in one month. But, with the help of each one of our volunteers, we know we can do it.

We need the help of our entire Meals from the Heartland community to make this event a success. Please take some time out of your week from Wednesday, August 31 to Saturday, September 3, to stop down at Hy-Vee Hall for just 2 hours to help package lifesaving meals for those who desperately need them.

Stop by during your lunch break, or bring your family, friends and coworkers for the afternoon. We welcome children ages 5 and up at this event. There will be music by MORE 104.1, a fun photo booth and chances to learn more about our mission at Meals from the Heartland.


Sign up now for the largest meal-packaging effort in the country.
