More than 10,000 families received groceries from The Salvation Army's two DMARC (Des Moines Area Religious Council) food pantries in the past year. In addition to monthly supplies of canned and packages food, families also receive fresh produce and baked goods. Each Wednesday a produce truck provides families access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
Each Tuesday and Friday morning nearly 1,000 hot breakfasts are served to homeless and near homeless individual in central Des Moines. The Salvation Army's Mobile Canteen (a complete kitchen on wheels) travels to five stops to provide nourishment and a friendly hand to our neighbors.
