Scan Away Hunger

Change a life for just $1.85!

Scan Away Hunger 2016 raised $76,379.05 to feed those who are hungry and homeless in central Iowa!

Scan Away Hunger is our annual effort to provide meals and care for hungry people in central Iowa…and you can help! Join Hope Ministries, Hy-Vee and KCCI 8 Des Moines from Thanksgiving through Christmas by “scanning” a plate at a participating metro Hy-Vee store OR give online. Just $1.85 provides a meal and care.

In addition to donating, here are other ways you can help Scan Away Hunger:

  • Post a link to hopeiowa.org/hunger on social media and encourage your friends to Scan Away Hunger too.
  • Invite your church to sponsor “Scan Away Hunger Sunday”. Email Terri for more details.
  • Order plates for your church or workplace or to hand out to your friends, small group, etc. Order plates by calling 515-265-7272.

Hope Ministries thanks our wonderful title sponsors Hy-Vee and KCCI 8 Des Moines, along with Christian Printers for their plate printing support.
