For nearly four decades, DMARC has leveraged in-kind food donations and volunteer hours to ensure that all possible resources are made available to help families in need.
As DMARC continues to carefully steward the generous gifts of loyal and new donors and volunteers, we recognize there are many worthy charitable causes deserving of your support. On behalf of the nearly 3,000 families served each month by DMARC’s Food Pantry Network, we thank you for your continued commitment and service.
Right now, you can also donate to DMARC’s Mulberry Capital Campaign.
How / What can I donate:
Cash donations are especially important. We leverage sources such as the Food Bank of Central Iowa and wholesale outlets to stretch our donor dollars, by purchasing up to two-thirds more food for every dollar a food donor might spend.
