‘Lend a Ham’ event to feed hundreds at downtown Des Moines shelter


Dozens of Des Moines area leaders will participate in the fifth annual “Lend A Ham” event taking place at Central Iowa Shelter & Services in Des Moines tomorrow morning on Giving Tuesday. Representatives from Fareway Stores, Iowa Pork Producers Association, elected officials and other leaders will serve hearty breakfast to vulnerable members of the community. Beginning at 6 a.m., volunteers will prepare and distribute 350 meals, which include pork biscuit sandwiches, fresh fruit, hot chocolate, and coffee; and milk and orange juice donated from AE Dairy. “This is the fifth year Fareway and Iowa Pork Producers Association have generously supported the CISS community in this way,” said Melissa O’Neil, Central Iowa Shelter & Services CEO. “Although the past couple of years have been challenging, these organizations have always found a way to deliver their special ‘bacon aromatherapy’ to those we serve.”
