Local Organization Feeds the Hungry with Bikes and Burritos
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Urban Bicycle Food Ministry says 12 percent of Iowans qualify as being hungry every night. That is why their mission is to serve dinner to every person in need one night a week. It all started with 25 burritos and a bike. Joe Lazlo started this organization in 2015, and now, four years later, 50 to 80 volunteers hand-deliver around 700 burritos, 250 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and 150 turkey sandwiches to those in need every Thursday night.
