The Great American Milk Drive

While milk is one of the top nutritious items requested by food bank clients, it’s rarely donated. That's why we're partnering with Feeding America to launch The Great American Milk Drive, a national campaign to secure highly desired gallons of nutrient-rich milk for millions of hungry families. With a small donation, you can help get fresh, nutritious milk to hungry families in our community.

Outnumber Hunger

For the third year, we're teaming up with General Mills, Big Machine label Group (including dynamic country music duo Florida Georgia Line) and Feeding America to Outnumber Hunger.  By redeeming a special code from a General Mills participating product and including a local zip code, Northeast Iowan's can provide meals in our community for those who might otherwise go without.  For every code entered before January 31, 2015, General Mills will donate 55.5 cents and up to $1,200,000 dollars!
