The Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) is an interfaith organization with a mission of meeting basic human needs in the greater Des Moines community. The DMARC Food Pantry Network provides a free, three-day supply of nutritionally-balanced food once per calendar month, with additional items available whenever a food pantry is open. Last year, DMARC assisted more than 55,000 individuals in Greater Des Moines, with 35% of those assisted being children and youth age 17 or younger. DMARC’s Food Pantry Network consists of 14 partner food pantries, about 30 mobile food pantry locations, six Refuel Station stops at local Boys & Girls Club locations (providing children and their families healthy and kid-friendly food), two food warehouses, and numerous community partners. Established in 1976, it is the largest food pantry network in Iowa, with pantry sites located in West Des Moines, Ankeny, Clive, Johnston, Urbandale, and Des Moines.
