Fill the EXILE Truck!

Exile Brewing Company is partnering with the DMARC Food Pantry Network by hosting a Food and Supply Drive this holiday season. Our goal is to FILL the Exile Truck with non-perishable items to donate to DMARC! Can you help us meet our goal? Bring non-perishable items to our EXILE Brewery at 1514 Walnut St, Des Moines, IA.

From November 15th through January 8th bring your donations of healthy food and personal care items to the brewpub.
Our mission at DMARC is working together to meet basic human needs for the greater Des Moines community – and that includes everyone. We strive to provide healthy, culturally appropriate food through our Food Pantry Network and welcome all those who need assistance, no matter their circumstances. We make every effort to treat each visitor to our food pantries with dignity and respect.People seeking assistance in the Des Moines metro area can go to one of 15 partner food pantry sites, numerous mobile food pantry sites, or home delivery program to receive a three-day supply of food for themselves and their families once per month at no cost.  Because DMARC is committed to providing food to 15 partner pantry sites at no cost, we have to rely on support from our generous contributors. Financial contributions are used to buy food at wholesale while donated food items are sorted, repackaged and then given to the pantry sites.

How YOU can help

The DMARC Food Pantry Network assists around 20,000 people experiencing food insecurity every month through 15 food pantry partners, 14 mobile food pantry locations, and a home delivery service.

Your help is so important. This past year we have seen more Central Iowans needing food assistance than ever before.  In fact, on Tuesday, November 1st DMARC assisted a record 1,430 unique individuals in a single day.  Our previous record was set on September 3,2019, where 1,475 unique Individuals were assisted.  This trend of more people needing food assistance has only grown since April of this year. We fully expect to see more records broken in the months ahead.

Exile Brewing has been generous to host a food and supply drive for DMARC. Please help them meet their goal to fill up their truck with non-perishable items or round up your check today to donate towards DMARC. Please make monetary donations here online!
