Iowa Food Bank Association Receives Large Donation from ‘Sack Hunger’

The Iowa Food Bank Association recently received a $21,000 donation from Farm Credit Services of America along with 4,200 pounds of pork from the Iowa Pork Producers Association and more than 50,000 eggs from the Iowa Egg Council.

The donations were part of the Sack Hunger program in Iowa, which directly benefits HACAP Food Reservoir. The check presentation was made during an Iowa State Men’s Basketball game.

For each quarterback sack the Iowa State Cyclones made in the 2023 football season, Farm Credit Services of America donated $1,000 to Sack Hunger in Iowa to help working Iowans who face the difficult decisions of paying their rent, mortgage, transportation or medical bills — or eating.

“It’s great to be part of the Iowa Food Bank Association, because we’re able to collaborate with other food banks serving Iowans,” said Kim Guardado, HACAP Food Reservoir Director. “As a Feeding America food bank, it’s important that we work together to source food that then is distributed to our pantry partners across the community.”

As Iowa’s six Feeding America food banks collaborate to more efficiently serve those facing hunger, focus is placed on nutritious food that can help those with food insecurity lead healthy, productive lives.

To take action to help those facing hunger, contact your local food bank (Food Bank of Iowa, Food bank for the Heartland, Food Bank of Siouxland, HACAP, Northeast Iowa Food Bank, or River Bend Food Bank) or visit
