11th Annual Hunger Fight (August 29 – September 1)


Time most certainly flies when you’re having fun!  And our 11th annual hunger fight is fast approaching.  Support and Packager registrations are now open.  Once again we’re looking forward to engaging the hearts of over 10,000 volunteers to help feed hungry people all around the world.


Miles for the Heartland (month of September)

If you like cycling and have a heart to help others look no further.  During this year’s “Hunger Action Month” we’ll be looking for riders to raise funds and awareness for our mission.  Our “one mile – one meal” approach to feeding the hungry is a great way to couple your passions!  Visit Miles for the Heartland or contact Mike Frandsen at mike.frandsen@mealsfromtheheartland.org or 515-473-9530 or visit our Facebook Event to learn more.  Let’s roll!
