Description:

Meals from the Heartland is a non-profit organization that empowers people to save the starving. They do this by engaging volunteers to package meals for delivery to alleviate hunger in Iowa, the United States and around the world. Meals from the Heartland organizes Hunger Fights throughout the year in partnership with organizations and communities across Iowa, as well at its packaging center in West Des Moines. Their Annual Hunger Fight, held every August at Hy-Vee Hall, in downtown Des Moines is one of the largest events of its kind in the country.

How to Help:

Individuals and organizations can support the work of Meals from the Heartland through donations, or volunteering to package at the West Des Moines packaging center Tuesdays through Saturdays or by hosting a mobile Hunger Fight in their community.
