Cold Run for Warm Meals

The National AgriMarketing Association Iowa Chapter is proud to introduce the Cold Run for
Warm Meals, a 2.5 mile run benefitting the Iowa Food Bank. Food insecurity is a challenge that

not have enough to eat. Tie up your laces and join us in our stand against hunger. Register today!
