Summer Meal Meet-Ups

Monday - Friday, Time Varies

More than 40,000 students in central Iowa qualify for free or reduced-price meals, but approximately 3,000 children take advantage of free meals during the summer. With the COVID-19 pandemic, its anticipated that this number has grown. Help us by sponsoring a summer meal site and help fund our community kitchen program so that we can continue to combat food insecurity in the Des Moines community.
