Over 190,000 pounds of food, equivalent to 95 tons, were collected during SAGA Hot AC KSTZ (STAR 102.5)/DES MOINES’s 18th Annual Combat Hunger, IOWA’s largest two-day food drive, NOVEMBER 20th and 21st.
"We just didn’t know what to expect this year because of all the economic turmoil," said PD SCOTT ALLEN. "It never ceases to amaze me how IOWANS come together to show their generosity for those in need even during this struggling economy."
STAR 102.5’s Combat Hunger Encampment is a collaborative effort between 190 CENTRAL IOWA businesses and schools. This annual food drive is a benefit for the FOOD BANK OF IOWA, which supplies food and other materials to hundreds of agencies in 42 IOWA counties.
