Proceeds from this event help to fight hunger in Siouxland by supporting food insecure children, families, seniors, and needy individuals.

There are many in Siouxland who carry a painful secret every day: Hunger.

According to Feeding America, the nationwide network of food banks, there are 25,380 food insecure individuals, including 10,780 food insecure children, living in the Food Bank of Siouxland’s 11 county service area. The Food Bank of Siouxland’s mission is to lead the fight against hunger for each and every one of those people living in fear of where their next meal will come from. This population includes working poor families with children; seniors just scraping by on a tiny, fixed Social Security income; families who once enjoyed prosperity through our area industries but who now have lost those opportunities, maybe forever. We do not discriminate against, nor do we judge those who are looking for assistance, but instead we offer hope and a hand up to help those struggling and in need.

By supporting Leader of the Pack, you are helping to provide hope to these families, children, and individuals. With your help, we can continue to fight hunger in our communities and offer a glimmer of hope to those in need.
