It’s the return of LAZER’s Walking Fed zombie food drive presented by Jay’s CD & Hobby – Your video game and board game headquarters. In 2016, the zombie hoard collected enough cash and food to help create over 30,000 meals for patrons of the Food Bank of Iowa. Donating is easy!


Make Jay Pay – Donate now at any of the Jay’s CD & Hobby locations. Just look for the black food collection bins or drop off your cash donation at any of the registers.  Jay will match your donation dollar-for-dollar or $1 for each food item, up to a maximum donation of $10,000.

Donate at these Jay’s CD & Hobby locations:

  • SE 14th Street & Park Ave by Hy-Vee
  • Valley West Mall, Upper Level by Younkers
  • Merle Hay Mall, Lower Level by Flix Brewhouse

It all wraps up March 24th as zombies invade Des Moines. Instead of brains, they want your cash & food donations. Stop by Valley West Mall between 10:00am-7:00pm as the zombies take your donations. Anyone that donates receives a coupon good for 15% off their next purchase at any of the three Jay’s CD & Hobby locations.

Why are donations for the Food Bank of Iowa so important in March?

  • Spring time is their slowest period for donations
  • Summer time is the highest time of need for food insecure children
  • More than 180,000 Iowans in their service area are food insecure
  • 1 in 8 Iowans and 1 in 5 kids are food insecure
  • Last year, the Food Bank of Iowa provided more than 9 million meals to Iowans in need
  • For every $1 donation, The Food Bank of Iowa can provide 4 meals

The Walking Fed food drive, Jay’s CD & Hobby, and LAZER 103.3 are proud supporters of the Food Bank of Iowa. The Food Bank of Iowa strives to meet the critical needs of a diverse population through its network of 390 partner agencies in 55 Iowa counties. The partner agencies include food pantries, soup kitchens, homeless shelters and shelters for victims of domestic violence, non-profit daycare, and residential care centers, as well as child and senior programs including their new School Pantry program!

Special considerations go out to Vanity & Glamour Cosmetics for providing make-up for our zombies.
