LI 40 - Des Moines Session Challenge

We are the 40th class of Leadership Iowa! We are asking for $4,000 to commemorate 40 years of this incredible program. The money raised during this campaign will stay in Iowa and within the 55 counties that the Food Bank of Iowa services. The Food Bank of Iowa has 677 partner agencies that include food pantries, community meal sites, shelters, schools, and other organizations. The Food Bank also has a mobile pantry program that offers a farmers market distribution in communities that do not have access to this kind of food resource. They also do a school pantry program, back pack program, and a summer food program that services kids in need on a regular basis. Distribution of more than 1.5M pounds of food isn't easy. The cost of labor, storage, sorting, and transportation for even donated items can be extremely high so every little bit helps. Lets show the Food Bank why the 40th class of Leadership Iowa is the best class ever!

About This Campaign

Forget the heavy lifting, donating is just a click away with a Virtual Food Drive! 

In fact, your donation will go further with a virtual food drive and provides a simple and immediate way to help end hunger in Iowa.

What is a Virtual Food Drive?

A Virtual Food Drive is a web-based tool allowing individuals and organizations to host a food drive through Food Bank of Iowa’s website. Donations can be made securely online giving everyone on your team a chance to see the progress in real time. With just a few clicks, anyone can purchase the most-needed items and make a difference in the lives of neighbors in need.

Why use the Virtual Food Drive?

The answer is simple – to get more food to those facing hunger in our community faster. By holding your food drive online, you will save the Food Bank the time and resources incurred through a physical food drive. Plus, your donations will help us purchase more of our most-needed food items in bulk including highly desirable perishable items such as milk and eggs. You give us the resources to purchase the most needed items in the moment as the need arises!

Virtual Food Drives give donors the opportunity to support important programming like School Pantries and the BackPack Program
