We are overwhelmed at the amazing response to our call for volunteers for our Christmas packaging event! All of the shifts filled up in no time at all as soon as the call went out. We may be adding more shifts – please keep checking back! Meals from the Heartland is so grateful and humbled by this outpouring of support!


The Des Moines Area Religious Council is in need of some supplementary ingredients to be paired with our products to help families throughout Central Iowa. DMARC has provided us with two simple recipes to feed a family, but they need YOUR help supplying the other ingredients.
