It’s the return of LAZER’s Walking Fed Zombie Food Drive presented by Jay’s CD & Hobby. On April 2, zombies will invade Des Moines. Instead of brains, they want your cash & food donations. In 2015, the zombie horde collected over 7,500 lbs. of food to help create over 24,000 meals for patrons of the Food Bank of Iowa.
Donating is easy:
Stop by Jay’s SE 14th Street location between 12:00pm and 6:00pm on April 2 and zombies will take your donation. You can also take advantage of great onsite donation incentives like 20% off anything in store at Jay’s if you dress up and donate and even the chance to win Slipknot Tickets!
Can’t make it on April 2nd? “Make Jay Pay” and drop off cash or canned food at any Jay’s CD & Hobby location until April 2nd. Jay will match your cash donations or give $1 for each can of food donated to the Food Bank of Iowa (or a maximum donation of $10,000).
Why are donations for the Food Bank of Iowa important in April?
- Spring time is the slowest period for donations at the Food Bank
- Summer time is the highest time of need for food insecure children
- More than 180,000 Iowans helped by the Food Bank are food insecure
- 1 in 8 Iowans and 1 in 5 kids is food insecure
- Last year, the Food Bank of Iowa provided more than 11 million lbs. of food to Iowans in need
- For every $1 donation, The Food Bank of Iowa can provide 4.5 meals
LAZER’s Walking Fed Food Drive and Jay’s CD & Hobby 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 day care and residential care centers, as well as child and senior programs including their School Pantry program.

Join us this Saturday from Noon to 6PM for the Walking Fed! We've partnered up with LAZER 103.3 - Everything That Rocks for a food drive benefiting the Food Bank of Iowa!

From Noon to 6PM, bring in a donation and get a 5% off voucher good for the day at both of our locations.

If you dress up as a zombie AND make a donation, you'll get a 20% off voucher good for the day at both of our locations!

All donations at our main south side location will be entered in for a chance to win VIP Wizard World Comic Con tickets and a photo op with Emily Kinney (Beth) and Michael Cudlitz (Abraham) from the Walking Dead!

There will be additional giveaways throughout the afternoon. Stay tuned to LAZER 103.3 for details!

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

- 1 in 8 Iowans are food insecure
- 1 in 5 Iowa children do not have enough to eat
- 64% of the Food Bank of Iowa clients have to choose between buying food or paying for medical care or medicine
- 65% of clients of the Food Bank of Iowa have to choose between buying food or paying for their utilities.
- For every $1 donation, The Food Bank of Iowa can provide 4.5 meals.

Donating is as easy as driving up, rolling down your window, and having one of our zombies take your donation. Not only will your donation help out the Food Bank of Iowa, but you could score some great items by donating!

The only reason to go to Southside! They have every kind of retro merchandise, as well as trading card games and comics and events. We go here almost every weekend because their stock changes all the time. You should go here!

Great place to buy used and new games and movies. Also, in store gaming. Sell your old movies and games. Great source for toys and figures.

Been a customer of Jay's since it opened after the local store at the time (Bob's Baseball Cards) closed up shop. It's always had a nice atmosphere and I've never failed to go in and find something I think I can't live without. Looking forward to many more years of good times.

Personable staff, excellent selection. I have a comics pull list at Jay's and have never had any issues. The shop has a chill atmosphere and you can tell that the employees are knowledgeable and passionate about their merchandise.

If you are into nerdy stuff, this is the place for you. Magic cards are reasonably priced, especially compared to Mayhem comics
