DMARC / Des Moines Area Religious Council
Company Description:The Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) is an interfaith organization with a mission of working together to meet basic human needs for the greater Des Moines community. This year, DMARC celebrated the 70th anniversary of its founding.
Perhaps its most recognizable contribution to the community is the DMARC Food Pantry Network, which includes 15 partner food pantries, numerous Mobile Food Pantry locations, a home delivery service, and a food warehouse.
The DMARC Food Pantry Network is Iowa's largest food pantry network and is committed to providing healthy food options and fresh produce to the people we assist. Once per calendar month, people can select a three-day supply of food from any one of our partner food pantries, and Anytime Items are available whenever our partner pantries are open.
The DMARC Food Pantry Network operates through three pillars: creating a dignified experience as close to a grocery store as possible; providing healthy, nutritious foods with an emphasis on produce; and collecting data to tell the broader story of food insecurity.
Last year, DMARC assisted over 43,000 unique individuals living with food insecurity in Greater Des Moines. DMARC could never do the work of feeding so many people without the partnership of many, diverse faith communities. Nearly 200 faith communities from across the religious spectrum support DMARC with cash support, donations of food, and service. Because we can do so much more together than we can on our own, DMARC has a commitment to helping our faith communities learn about one another and build relationships.
