The Details

Did you know that we play an integral role in A Partnership for a Hunger Free Polk County?  Hunger happens 365 days of the year, and it happens for 26,690 individuals right here in Polk County. The Partnership for a Hunger-Free Polk County has the solution — to raise enough funds to support the efforts of local food pantries and other food providers to ensure that the 13,464 children who are food insecure in our community have access to the food they need, and not just during the holidays but every day of the year. Please join in us in supporting this important effort with your generous donations of money, time, or food. Together, a hunger-free Polk County is within reach.

Our apprentices and volunteers procure, prepare and deliver 2,000 hot meals per month to community centers in the Des Moines Metro serving those who are food insecure.  While we continue our search for donated bulk food products, we continue the program with commercially purchased food which is made possible through generous donors.
