ImpactCR: Volunteer Project

1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Feed Iowa First
1506 10th Street SE
Cedar Rapids, IA 52403

Join ImpactCR for their May event focused on giving back to our community. We will roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty  volunteering with Feed Iowa First.

Feed Iowa First is a nonprofit dedicated to increasing food security by growing and distributing free, fresh produce and supporting emerging farmers. In 2022, they served 26,000+ individuals, gave out 46,000 pounds of produce and connected 36 emerging farmers and gardeners to land.

We will be helping with a variety of projects that could include: prepping garden plots, planting cool weather crop, or taking down hoop houses. It will be manual labor that is dirty, so please wear clothes appropriate for that type of activity. After our hard work, we plan to treat ourselves to some food at Lion Bridge Brewery.

With ImpactCR, young professionals don’t just come to exchange business cards; they come to create opportunities for learning and development, support civic engagement and to cultivate the future business and community leaders of Cedar Rapids. For over 15 years, ImpactCR has aimed to empower young professionals to discover their “why” and provide them the tools to act on it and create a lasting, positive impact on their community. 

Our vision is a dynamic, inclusive and diverse community where young professionals want to live, work and play. All events and programming are free of charge, and made possible by the generous sponsorships of our presenting sponsor Collins Aerospace and supporting sponsor Principal Financial.
