The Des Moines Area Religious Council Food Pantry Network is adapting partnerships to serve during the COVID-19 crisis. Facing supply-chain issues acquiring 1- to 2-pound bags of rice, DMARC is partnering with Meals from the Heartland to repackage 25-pound bags of rice into smaller packages more suitable for food pantry distribution. Both DART and Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Iowa have provided drivers to assist with food pantry delivery services to community members. DART continues to host a DMARC mobile food pantry at DART Central Station every Thursday from 4 to 6 p.m.
