DMARC YP is a diverse group of committed young professionals, dedicated to create awareness of food insecurity in our community and support DMARC’s efforts to end it.


We want to give members unique opportunities to connect through purpose, grow personally & professionally, and build lasting relationships.


The YP Board is made up of 8-12 board members that are elected annually.
