The seventh annual Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger started on Monday. Iowa Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds along with representatives from the Des Moines Symphony, the Food Bank of Iowa, Bank of the West, Casey’s General Stores, Hy-Vee, Inc., the Polk Co. Board of Supervisors and KCCI made the official announcement of the campaign.
Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds stated the Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger as an important campaign that had successfully raised awareness for the Food Bank of Iowa for the past few years.
“I am honored to once again have the opportunity to work alongside community businesses to shed light on the importance of providing food to those in need in Central Iowa,” Reynolds said.
People are encouraged to donate non-perishable food items at Des Moines metro-area Bank of the West or Hy-Vee store locations or at the Des Moines Symphony’s 22nd annual Yankee Doodle Pops on Thursday, July 2.
All Yankee Doodle Drive Against Hunger donations will help the Food Bank of Iowa. The campaign will continue up to July 5.
