Outnumber Hunger 300X282

Help the Northeast Iowa Food Bank unlock meals with Outnumber Hunger!

At Northeast Iowa Food Bank we work hard everyday to provide hunger relief to those in need right here in Northeast Iowa.  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(the equivalent of 5 meals for area families) and up to $1,200,000 dollars! Visit for more details!
