Help Us Stop Hunger or HUSH is a partnership between the Food Bank of Iowa, the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, hunters and meat lockers. Their mission is to help stop hunger in Iowa. One meat plant which assists in HUSH is the Crawford Meat Plant in Wayland. Owner Danny Crawford says, the plant has processed over 2,500 pounds of meat this hunting season. Crawford adds hunters are still bringing in their harvests to be processed. When the season is completely done he expects to have donated nearly 3,000 pounds of meat to Iowa food banks.
