Connecting Communities Through Food

Eat Greater Des Moines

Eat Greater Des Moines is a central Iowa-based non-profit organization that facilitates and builds connections to strengthen the area’s food system. Our mission is to unite the community by providing quality food access for all. We build community through food. By bringing people to the table, we empower partners in our community to connect, support one another, and move ideas into action through information sharing, building relationships, and providing education on the most urgent issues related to food in our community.

13th Annual EAT-A-THON

It's time! We are excited to announce Eat Greater Des Moines is 1 of 12 central Iowa nonprofit teams participating in the 13th Annual EAT-A-THON. The EAT-A-THON is a one-of-a-kind community-based fundraiser, camouflaged as an eating competition. Our goal is to not only FINISH the Emmenecker, but to fund our Food Rescue Transportation Program for 1 year.

Can you help us reach our goal?
