The National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC) annual Stamp Out Hunger® food drive, which had been scheduled on May 9, has been cancelled, due to COVID-19.
DMARC, as a local recipient of this food drive in Greater Des Moines, will sorely miss the food that this drive provided locally, which last year amounted to over 66,000 pounds of food contributed.
These contributions directly supported DMARC’s efforts to fight food insecurity in our community. In 2019, DMARC provided food to over 55,000 unique individuals through its network of 14 partner pantries and additional mobile food pantries locations.
You can help lessen this impact of this loss by making a contribution today through our virtual food drive below!
Thank you in advance for your support! We look forward to next year when the Stamp Out Hunger® food drive and sorting volunteer event will return!
