Mobile Food Pantry

DMARC is suspending the Mobile Food Pantry sites until further notice. This does not include the Mobile Food Pantry site at DART Central Station which will continue to operate from 4-6 p.m. every Thursday.
We apologize for any inconvenience this causes. If you are seeking out food assistance please consider utilizing our delivery services or visit your nearest pantry location.

Locations and Hour


Volunteering with the DMARC Mobile Food Pantry is just like helping a friend grocery shop! As a Mobile Food Pantry volunteer, you will meet at the mobile pantry site and assist clients in selecting their food items after they have gone through intake. Training is available. If interested, please sign up online above, or contact Joe Dolack, operations manager at 515-318-9228.

About the Mobile Food Pantry

The DMARC Mobile Food Pantry was made possible by the Polk County Board of Supervisors and the Partnership for a Hunger-Free Polk County. Special thanks to Stivers Ford Lincoln, Schneider Graphics, Snappy’s Trailer Store, H & H Trailers, and two individual bequests.
