Hawkeye Loss In Outback Bowl Benefits Food Charities

Hawkeye Loss In Outback Bowl Benefits Food Charities


Spencer, IA: (Jan. 16, 2014) – The Iowa Hawkeye’s loss in the Outback Bowl against Louisiana State University turned out to be a “win” for the hungry in Iowa and in Louisiana, thanks to a friendly wager between the governors of the two states.

Each governor agreed to send 200 pounds of his states quintessential food (Iowa pork and Louisiana seafood) to charities in both states if his team lost.

Following the Iowa lost to LSU, the Deb & Jeff Hansen Iowa Select Farms Foundation donated and delivered 100 pounds of ham to the Food Bank of Iowa in Des Moines. The Foundation shipped 100 pounds of ham to a soup kitchen in Louisiana.

Rhonda Grace, with the Grace Place Ministries, welcomed the donation. She said they serve 3000 meals a month and the need keeps growing. She plans to cut up the hams and serve it with red beans and rice.
