Food Pantry Network

Through our 14 partner food pantry sites and Mobile Food Pantry, we offer a three-day supply of food to individuals or families once per month.

Interfaith Engagement

Together different faith traditions can be a blessing to our city. DMARC works to unify those faith traditions for the greater good. Learn more about what unifies us.

Housing Stability Fund

DMARC partners with other area agencies to provide temporary relief in the form of emergency rent and utility assistance through our Housing Stability Fund.


The Des Moines Area Religious Council advocates for policies that will reduce food insecurity in the state of Iowa.

Other Services

DMARC is proud to sponsor other programs in addition to our primary human services efforts and our interfaith outreach. One program is LADOS: a forum where widowed men and women of all ages meet monthly to compassionately and practically encourage one another to grieve in their unique way.
