DMARC Announces Commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America
The Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) has announced a commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America (PHA) to continue its innovative work on incentivizing healthy food choices through the DMARC Food Pantry Network.
“The Partnership for a Healthier America is excited to team up with the Des Moines Area Religious Council’s Food Pantry Network to explore innovative ways of incentivizing healthy eating at food pantries,” said Larry Soler, President and CEO of the Partnership for a Healthier America. “By partnering with local organizations like DMARC, we hope to develop data-driven solutions to some of our largest national nutrition concerns such as food insecurity, early childhood nutrition, obesity and adult-onset diabetes.”
DMARC’s commitment to the Partnership for a Healthier America shows that both parties are committed to helping build healthier futures for children. DMARC has committed to continue using the USDA MyPlate to determine healthy food choices, increase distribution of fruits and vegetables, continue exploration and implementation of the Food Pantry 2.0 model, increase nutritious food choices for young children, and distribute healthy recipes throughout the DMARC Food Pantry Network.
