WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (May 5, 2020) - Today Hy-Vee, Inc., in partnership with Meat District, donated more than $37,000 worth of meat and other food items to Second Harvest Heartland in Minneapolis. The donation to Second Harvest Heartland is part of "Feeding the Frontlines" – a series of donations that Hy-Vee and Meat District are making to help provide meat and other items to food banks throughout Hy-Vee's eight-state region.

More than $37,000 worth of frozen meat and pantry staple items was donated to Second Harvest Heartland in Minneapolis today, in partnership with Golden West Food Group and Meat District. The donation contained approximately 9,000 pounds of food.

"We are extremely grateful for Meat District's partnership in helping us care for our communities during this difficult time," said Tina Potthoff, Hy-Vee's senior vice president of communications. "We are committed to helping our local food banks and hope this donation will provide some relief for them and our communities."

In addition to various packages of chicken and pork, donations also included rice, pasta, breadcrumbs and seasonings. The donation comes as food banks across Minnesota are working hard to keep their shelves stocked due to increased demand from COVID-19.

Second Harvest Heartland is a proud member of Feeding America servicing 59 counties in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

"We are extremely grateful for our partnership with Hy-Vee in launching our 'Feeding the Frontlines' initiative," said Zack Levenson, COO of Meat District. "We are excited and honored to have the opportunity to give back and ensure families are being fed, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic."
