OpportUNITY Summit

October 24 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

In 2016, nearly 100,000 central Iowans were food insecure and of those, more than 28,000 were hungry. There are people living in central Iowa—Dallas, Polk, and Warren counties—who are food insecure, and others, who are hungry, and don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. 

The summit aims to increase awareness of food insecurity in central Iowa through a shared understanding of what it means to be food insecure and hungry, and identify solutions to help those who struggle with hunger on a day-to-day basis.

Tuesday, October 24, 2017 | 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Polk County Northside Community Center

3010 6th Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50313

FILL THE NORTHSIDE FOOD PANTRY SHELVES

Together as a community we can help DMARC fill the shelves at the Northside Food Pantry. Peanut butter and healthy cereals (whole grain / low sugar) are two food items we can collect at the summit. View a complete list of the most needed items.
