Empowering people to save starving children
Who We Are
Meals from the Heartland is a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization that believes in the importance of prayer, volunteer service and financial giving to help save starving children. We are made up of volunteers from businesses, schools, churches, community organizations and beyond who package meals for delivery to malnourished people in Iowa, across the United States and around the world. Since 2008, Meals from the Heartland has provided over 165 million meals to the hungry in Iowa and around the world.
Meals from the Heartland’s packaged meals help feed the hungry throughout the world. Meals are delivered directly to locations in Iowa, the U.S. and around the world — wherever people are undernourished or starving. When you volunteer to fight hunger with us, not only are you feeding hungry children, but meal packaging is an enjoyable, rewarding experience. We welcome individuals and teams from businesses, schools, churches, community organizations, clubs and more to volunteer with us to support our mission to feed starving children.
