The 6th annual Foodies Grocery Games runs from May 24 through June 9, 2024. This year’s goal is $25,000 to help the Food Bank provide up to 75,000 meals as food insecurity levels continue to increase across the Heartland.

To help those efforts, Foodie founder Jayne Timmerman, along with her husband Daniel Jaksich, have graciously stepped up with a $10,000 match. 

Your support is needed now more than ever. Feeding America reports that food insecurity levels have increased in every one of the 93 counties served by Food Bank for the Heartland.
