When you think about the perfect gift to celebrate an anniversary, what comes to mind? Would it happen to be the gift of fulfilling a favorite local nonprofit’s wishlist? For Matt McGrane and David Maier, it was!

Matt purchased nearly every item on our wishlist, including a soil mixer, a tool chest, garden dump carts, a rotary cultivator, a digital scale, pruning shears, and a flame weeder  —  a donation at about a $1,200 value, to surprise David for their anniversary.  And all of these items greatly increase Feed Iowa First’s efficiency and productivity, critical for a farming nonprofit. We greatly admire their generosity!

David and Matt  say: “We were shocked to recently learn that within Linn County, almost 25,000 people are food insecure, and that one in seven children go to bed hungry. Feed Iowa First educates and engages our community to grow and distribute produce to friends and neighbors, who otherwise may not have access to locally grown fruits and vegetables. We’re proud to be volunteers at Feed Iowa First and to do what we can to help reduce food insecurity in our community.”
