Kading, an Urbandale-based property development company, is buying about $10,000 in meals from local restaurants to help its residents in 18 communities in Central Iowa during the coronavirus pandemic. The family-owned company has partnered with locally owned restaurants in Winterset, Indianola, Stuart and Adel to pay between $300 and $600 for meals in each community. Officials with Kading said support for its residents in other communities is scheduled in the coming weeks. Other communities where Kading has properties include Des Moines, Bondurant, Pleasant Hill, Altoona, Perry, Boone, Huxley and Marshalltown. The company’s developments include bi-attached, or twin, ranch-style houses that are rented and managed through a company Kading owns. In the past four weeks, many residents of Kading properties have received one free meal to help lessen the burden of the COVID-19 pandemic. “As a small family business, we can’t end the COVID-19 crisis. We can invest in one another and show that we care for the people and businesses in the communities that we serve,” said Karie Ramsey, Kading’s CEO.
