About the Organization:

Founded in 1952, DMARC leads interfaith dialogue and cooperation, responds to meet basic human needs and is at the forefront of community action and advocacy in Greater Des Moines for nearly six decades.

From its formative years as a Protestant-based organization, DMARC grew to include over 130-member congregations of Christian, Jewish, Muslim and Unitarian faiths representing nearly 70,000 congregants. DMARC also welcomes and engages with followers of Baha’i, Buddhist and Native American faith traditions.

Presently, more than 34,000 people annually are served through the DMARC Food Pantry Network, Compassion in Action, Childcare Assistance, and Interfaith Engagement programs.

The work of DMARC continues through the generosity of DMARC members and other faith congregations, as well as countless individuals, businesses, civic organizations and groups from public, private and non-profit sectors.

In 2017, the total support from DMARC for all partner pantries in the DMARC Food Pantry Network was valued at $1,879,303*.

DMARC provided partner pantries with 1,202,498 non-perishable food items with a wholesale value of $673,399 and $166,943 worth of fresh produce for distribution through our three-day monthly supply of food, a total value of $840,342.

Additional food items provided, including extra non-perishable items, frozen meat, and dairy products, were valued at $400,055.

Personal care products, toilet paper, diapers, and other non-food items provided by DMARC to partner pantries were valued at $88,155.

The cost of DMARC overhead attributed to partner pantries had a value of $550,751. This includes staff, transportation, and technical expenses to support DMARC’s partner food pantries.
