The Food Bank of Iowa is preparing for one of its biggest events of the year.

The annual Combat Hunger event is next Thursday and Friday.

One in eight Iowans are food insecure while one in five children do not have enough food to eat, officials said.

People can donate items to any Dahl’s locations or drop them off at next week’s food drive.

If you want to donate but don’t have time to drop off donations at a Dahl’s, the Combat Hunger food drive will accept the donations at the corner of 12th and Locust downtown.
