The Iowa Giving Crew produced their fifth annual Operation: Give Birds meal giveaway on Sunday, November 21st.
While previous years were dedicated towards Cedar Rapids and Iowa City, this year, the Iowa Giving Crew were able to expand their operations out towards Waterloo.
Over 1,000 meals were provided to families this year, with this year the crew returned to Van Meter Inc. to deliver meals.
The Giveaway initially started off as a prank before the founding board members realized that they could fulfill a need for delivering meals in Cedar Rapids.
Their operations initially started off from the back of a truck, handing out meals in the NewBo City Market.
Their operations since have expanded outwards to several locations across Eastern Iowa.
