Through its partnership with Feeding America, the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, Casey’s has helped provide 30 million meals to people struggling with hunger in its local communities, the retailer announced.

Since the partnership was established in 2020, Casey’s guests have been invited to join the movement to end hunger and participate in Casey’s annual roundup at the register campaign supporting Feeding America. For each dollar donated, 10 meals are distributed to families across the heartland through the Feeding America nationwide network of food banks. Recently the partnership between Casey’s and Feeding America marked 30 million meals made possible since the launch of the partnership.

“At Casey’s, our purpose is to make life better for our communities and our guests every day—and this includes working alongside Feeding America and the 53 local food banks we assist to help those struggling with hunger," said Ena Williams, chief operating officer at Casey’s. “Food insecurity and availability present challenges for many in our communities. But through meaningful collaboration, community partnerships and the generosity of our guests, we will continue to make a positive impact for those who need it most.”

Eighty-seven percent of counties with the highest rates of food insecurity are rural, according to Feeding America. As this challenge remains prevalent nationwide, Casey’s is committed to prioritizing additional ways to support hunger relief efforts across the heartland.

The company recently donated $100,000 to the Food Bank of Iowa in Des Moines, Iowa, in support of expanding its distribution center. And this spring, Casey’s provided $30,000 to the Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, enabling funds for five mobile food distribution events in Knoxville, Tennessee, where nearly 50,000 pounds of food were distributed to local area communities.
