STAR 102.5's 2019 Combat Hunger sponsored by Cognizant

About This Campaign

The largest food drive in the state of Iowa, Star 102.5’s Combat Hunger raised more than 250,000 meals for Iowans in need in 2018. Join us as we continue to make a difference for Iowans in need!

Star 102.5 started Combat Hunger more than 28 years ago with one mission: help the Food Bank of Iowa provide meals for Iowans in need. Since then, Combat Hunger has provided millions of meals through the downtown encampment and food drives all across Central Iowa.

Use this virtual food drive to stretch your dollar by donating funds toward the purchase of meals at the Food Bank of Iowa!

Campaign to Support Food Bank of Iowa

At the Food Bank of Iowa, we’re dedicated to ending hunger in Iowa—for each one of the 175,000 children, families, and seniors we serve. With your help, we can.

95.9 cents of every dollar donated to Food Bank of Iowa supports our food distribution programs. By keeping administrative services expenses (1.1%) and fundraising expenses (3%) low, we can provide 4 meals for every dollar contributed to Food Bank of Iowa.

Together, we can solve hunger.
