We are excited to partner with Des Moines businesses Hy-Vee and Doll Distributing  to fight hunger in the Des Moines Metro area during the month of September.

For every case of our Oktoberfest bottles sold in local Des Moines-area Hy-Vee stores, two meals will be donated to the DMARC Food Pantry Network to fight hunger. Twenty-one Des Moines Metro Hy-Vee stores will participate in the food drive, as well as Doll Distributing, a local beer distributor.

“DMARC is excited to partner with Exile Brewing, Hy-Vee and Doll Distributing to provide food to families in need right here in Greater Des Moines,” said DMARC Food Pantry Network Director Rebecca Whitlow. “This opportunity could not have come at a better time for us. With 12 food pantries in the area and the addition of our new Mobile Food Pantry, we are serving more people in more places than any other time in our Food Pantry Network’s 40-year history.”

The program will begin Sep. 1st and last until Sep. 31st with a donation goal of 4,000 meals.
