Combat Hunger

November 2021 | Virtual Event

Join us for Star 102.5’s Combat Hunger to help Food Bank of Iowa provide meals for Iowans in need. While this event traditionally hosts a large food drive, in the interest of people’s health and safety, we went virtual in 2020!* We are excited to announce that Star 102.5’s Combat Hunger provided up to 352,356 meals in 2020! 

Because of YOU, our virtual “30 Goals for 30 Years” campaign page for Combat Hunger met all goals! Leverage the Food Bank of Iowa’s bulk-purchasing power and see your impact grow as a team. It’s easy to sign up and send the link out to your crew.

Get Involved: Start your own Combat Hunger food drive! 

  • View our Combat Hunger 2020 Tool-Kit to get tips on how to run a successful virtual food drive
  • Donate funds toward the purchase of meals at Food Bank of Iowa: $1 = 4 meals 
*In an effort to prioritize the health and safety of volunteers, staff and participants, we are unable to pick up physical food drive items in 2020.

The Walking Fed

2022 | Virtual Event

Zombies should go hungry, but kids shouldn’t. When spring and summer break hit, kids who depend on school-based programs for breakfast and lunch no longer have access to these meals. This is why LAZER 103.3 is proud to present the Walking Fed food drive to benefit Food Bank of Iowa in an effort to help feed the kids and keep their shelves stocked.

Stay tuned for more information to come for The Walking Fed in 2022! 

In 2021, The Walking Fed Campaign provided 50,704 MEALS to children in Iowa! 

Smoke Out Hunger

July 31, 2022 | Location TBD

Thank you for attending our 6th Annual Smoke Out Hunger. This family-friendly Sunday afternoon event built awareness for food insecurity, while raising funds to help Iowans struggling to make ends meet. Thank you for feeding families in need.

Families enjoyed all the BBQ they could eat from a smoke-tastic lineup of local pitmasters and restaurants (including a vegetarian BBQ option). They paired their BBQ samplings with refreshing craft beers — all at no cost past the ticket price. There was fantastic live music, kid’s activities, and games. All proceeds benefited Food Bank of Iowa’s work to end hunger in Iowa. 

Save the date for Smoke Out Hunger 2022! We want to thank the vendors and sponsors below for making Smoke Out Hunger 2021 a great event!
