Gov. Kim Reynolds signed a proclamation Sept. 14 declaring September as Hunger Action Month, citing the high numbers of people who are food insecure in Iowa, and the effects food insecurity can have on a person’s health and education and on the economy. Reynolds called on Iowans to fight hunger and food insecurity by volunteering and donating.

Business Publications Corp. and its publications, including dsm and ia magazines and the Business Record, began their Iowa Stops Hunger campaign in 2020 to raise awareness of food insecurity in Iowa and inspire action to combat it. Read more about the campaign and additional stories at
