Des Moines District continues fight against food insecurity
Des Moines District employees packaged meals to help those in need locally and worldwide.
Central Division teams partnered with Meals from the Heartland, a nonprofit organization that distributes packaged meals for delivery to malnourished people across the world.
In October, Des Moines District employees packaged more than 15,000 meals for those in need.
In addition to packaging the meals, Martin Marietta made a $5,000 donation to the nonprofit.
“Food insecurity is a serious problem locally, nationally and globally, and we are proud to join the fight against hunger,” said Neil Grant, the Central Division's natural resources director. “Our staff truly enjoys these meal packaging events. The camaraderie is genuine, and the competition between our assembly tables has become fierce.”
Since 2016, the Des Moines District has packaged more than 150,000 meals distributed to more than 40 countries.
