Did you know DMARC's Mobile Food Pantry makes bi-monthly stops to the Johnston Public Library parking lot? Stops will be the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays from 4pm-6pm. Find more information at www.dmarcunited.org/food/mobile/ WHAT CAN I RECEIVE? Once per calendar month, you may receive a 3-day supply of food, measured by family size. Our food follows a healthy food guideline. Select which food items you want with our choice pantry service model. Daily food items are available to anyone, any time the pantry is open. HOW DO I GET HELP? There are no income requirements. Bring a photo ID for every adult member of your household, and some other form of ID for all children in the household. At the Mobile Food Pantry, you will go through a short intake process.
