Hy-Vee Giving Away Free Food In Cedar Rapids


Hy-Vee will be giving away free food to people in Cedar Rapids impacted by last month's storm.

The grocery chain will have three semi-trailers full of food and water at the Veterans Memorial Stadium parking lot from noon to 2:00 p.m. on Thursday.

About 42-thousand bottles of water and 13-thousand pounds of chicken breasts will be distributed along with snack crackers.

“In the aftermath of the storm, we knew the residents in the Cedar Rapids and surrounding areas would need assistance for some time,” Tina Potthoff, senior vice president of communications at Hy-Vee says.
