Do you eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Many children in Des Moines are “food insecure.” That means they don’t have all the food they need to be healthy. Chances are one or more of your classmates doesn’t get enough food to eat.

Here in Des Moines, we have an organization called Food Bank of Iowa. They send food into more than 50 of Iowa’s 99 counties – about a million pounds every holiday season.

Would you like to donate to Food Bank of Iowa? Food and money help! As a grade school student, you can give some of your own money. You can also encourage your friends and family members to donate. Your donation helps people right here in Des Moines. If you want to donate this holiday season, drop off non-perishable food items or send money to:

Food Bank of Iowa
