Humboldt, Iowa — Meals From the Heartland is set to make it’s 8th annual run in Humboldt this weekend and their goals have never been higher.

Sometime this weekend they’ll also pack their one millionth meal, a milestone not going under the radar.

The reach is far greater than you may have originally understood!
