Throughout the month of November 2013, the employees of Ryko Solutions Inc. in Grimes, IA joined forces with the Food Bank of Iowa and its Combat Hunger Food Drive to benefit Iowans. The company, on behalf of its employees, made a contribution of $14,000 along with food that had been placed in receptacles located throughout the company’s 250,000-square-foot factory.

The Food Bank of Iowa serves 285 partner agencies in 42 Iowa counties from a 53,000-square-foot distribution center in Des Moines containing more than 45,000 square feet of dry storage, 48,000 cubic feet of freezer space and substantial cooler space. In addition to its program food distribution throughout the year, the organization partners with statewide groups to conduct education programs for residents.
