The Iowa Farm Bureau Federation (IFBF) and University of Iowa athletic department’s America Needs Farmer’s (ANF) initiative presented a check for $32,250 to the Iowa Food Bank Association during the Hawkeyes’ spring practice in West Des Moines last week. The ANF donation is critical to feeding the growing number of Iowans who struggle to put healthy, nutritious meals on the table for their families, said Mike Miller, chairman of the Iowa Food Bank Association.

A portion of the proceeds of ANF-branded merchandise sales goes toward stocking Iowa food banks. For more information on ANF and its supporters, visit
