Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation Donates $8,000 to Food Bank of Iowa

January 16, 2020 | Media Center

Food Bank of Iowa received $8,000, which equates to 32,000 meals, from the Enterprise Rent-A-Car Foundation to address food insecurity in Iowa. The donation is part of Enterprise’s Fill Your Tank program, which launched in October 2016 to mark Enterprise’s 60th anniversary by providing $60 million to fight hunger globally.

Now in its fourth year, the Fill Your Tank program has distributed a total of $40 million among larger food banks and charities throughout North America and Europe, in addition to smaller local food banks and pantries in North American communities. The Fill Your Tank program donations made locally are determined by regional Enterprise operations, and this year $5 million was distributed to food banks and pantries throughout the communities served by Enterprise.

In presenting the donation, Nate Nees, Area Manager at Enterprise, said, “We are proud to support Food Bank of Iowa in its mission to fight hunger in Iowa. Since the Fill Your Truck program launched in 2016, we have been committed to addressing food insecurity around the globe and making a difference in the communities where we live and work.”

Although there is enough food produced to feed the population, one in nine people still go to bed on an empty stomach. In the U.S. alone, 37 million people face hunger, including more than 11 million children, according to Feeding America.
