West Des Moines Leadership Academy

The West Des Moines Leadership Academy selects a non-profit organization to support and raise money for each year. This year, our Class of 2020 has chosen to partner with Food Bank of Iowa as they continue to stock area pantries and organizations with resources during COVID-19. Our goal is to raise as much capitol as possible to support Food Bank’s top priority of ensuring that our most vulnerable neighbors have access to the nutrition and resources they need. The team at Food Bank are currently assembling Emergency Food Packs with approximately 20 pounds of shelf-stable items to make distribution to area partners easier, faster, and safer. Unfortunately, the solution does not come free. The costs for additional food, labor, freight, supplies, sanitation, and miles on the road will be very significant. The solution to ending COVID-19 crisis will be a marathon, not a sprint. Your monetary support will provide Food Bank of Iowa with the endurance to get there. Each dollar contributed will provide up to 4 meals to food insecure Iowans. We hope you will consider the opportunity to contribute so they may continue providing essential nutrition and support to those in our communities that are in need. Please refer to the next page to explore contribution options. Thank you for your support and generosity. We look forward to making an impact with your team!

About This Campaign

The Situation

In light of the COVID-19 crisis, the world around us is changing daily. Unschooled children are not getting 2-3 meals provided daily at school. University students have been displaced. Low wage earners are losing precious hours which would have converted to food on the table. Able-bodied seniors are now home-bound. Small businesses and restaurants are shuttering operations. Day cares are closing.

The Solution

At Food Bank of Iowa, our top priority remains to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors have safe access to the nutrition and resources they need. We are collaborating with schools, area agencies on aging,churches, and community partners to help feed people in-need. We are assembling Emergency Food Packs with approximately 20 pounds of shelf-stable items to make distribution for our partners easier, faster, and safer.

The Cost

Unfortunately, the solution does not come free. The costs for additional food, labor, freight, supplies, sanitation, and miles on the road will be very significant. The solution to ending COVID-19 crisis will be a marathon, not a sprint. Your monetary support will provide us with the endurance to get there. $1 will provide up to 4 meals to food insecure Iowans.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you!
