Midwest Basement Systems' Annual Food Drive

Tuesday, November 26th, 2013


Tom Henderson, Midwest Basement Systems, interviewing Lindsey Pingle Communication Director The Food Bank of IowaOnce again Midwest Basement Systems is hosting its annual food drive, in connection with the Food Bank of Iowa.  Just a little history; our involvement began after learning how many Iowans are coming up short of food to eat, and the situations that have led to their ability or inability to feed themselves or their families.  The bulk of the Iowans that are short of food simply have come into hard times from significant changes in their lives, for example, a huge medical expense, loss of the major financial provider in the family, bankruptcy, an unexpected major automobile repair expense, and others. 

Some interesting and I opening facts:

•1 in 8 Iowans are food insecure
•1 in 5 Iowa children does not have enough to eat

 

So we are proud to help with the mission of The Food Bank of Iowa which is alleviating hunger through food distribution, partnership and education.

With that in mind we are a collection station for the Food Bank of Iowa, and our goal is 500 pounds of non-perishable foods to deliver on December 20th, 2013.  With everyone's help we can reach this goal and more.

Midwest Basement Systems sits at 5153 NE 17th Street, and you can contact us at 515 289-1606 if you need more direction.  For a map, just click here.
