Operation Rice Bowl Benefits DMARC
The DMARC Food Pantry Network was recently awarded a $550 grant from the Diocese of Des Moines and Catholic Relief Services’ Operation Rice Bowl Program.
Operation Rice Bowl provides an opportunity for individuals and families to make a positive difference in the lives of people around the world who struggle with hunger and poverty. It provides Catholics with an opportunity to live out the central themes of Lent by praying with their families and faith communities, fasting in solidarity with those who don’t have enough food, learning about the joys and challenges in the lives of our brothers and sister around the world and giving sacrificial contributions to assist the poor.
The $550 grant will provide 950 healthy meals to support 105 local individuals.
DMARC thanks the Diocese of Des Moines and Catholic Relief Services for their ongoing support.
