Northwest Iowa — Students who are on the Free & Reduced Lunch Program here in northwest Iowa, and across the state, will be the beneficiaries of a new program thatĀ aims to feed protein-packed sandwiches to needy children.

Allyson Ladd is marketing specialist for Iowa’s largest pork producer, Iowa Select Farms, which is starting what it’s calling the Power Snack program.

The program is now going statewide after it had been tried as a pilot program in several Iowa communities and Ladd says the coupons were a success.

She says recent studies find one in eight children in Iowa are food insecure, meaning they’re not sure where their next meal may be coming from.
