AMES, Iowa—When the Cyclones play host to Oklahoma State this Saturday at Jack Trice Stadium, they will also be hosting Sack Hunger Day.
More than 400,000 Iowans, including nearly 140,000 children, struggle against hunger and suffer from food insecurity. The Iowa Food Bank Association, a collaboration of the eight Feeding America food banks that serve all 99 counties in Iowa, is helping this fight.
Together, the food banks help provide 16 million meals a year by distributing food to nearly 1,000 nonprofit agencies that feed hungry Iowans. Hunger exists in every community and the Iowa Food Bank Association encourages every Iowan to learn about what hunger looks like and take action.
Learfield Sports’ Cyclone Sports Properties has partnered up with Hy-Vee and Farm Credit Services of America to Sack Hunger in Iowa. As a part of the Sack Hunger program, HyVee is accepting non-perishable food and cash donations at the Ames stores as well as drop-off locations outside of Jack Trice Stadium on Saturday.
Donations will be accepted at the Hy-Vee semi-trucks located on the north and south ends of the stadium.
Come cheer on the Cyclones this Saturday as they sack the Cowboys and help Sack Hunger in Iowa.
