A Message From 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!
