The last Tuesday of each month, one of our trucks makes a special trip to Mason City. After delivering to our partner agencies along the way, our driver stops at Armour/Eckrich, a protein manufacturer and Food Bank of Iowa donor. Throughout the month, their team sets aside products for donations which allows us to be able to consistently offer nutritious protein on our inventory. Because meat is one of the most expensive items to purchase, and most difficult donations to come by, our partnership with Armour/Eckrich is so important.
In January, they provided over 5,700 meals to our neighbors in need, helping make ends meat.
