Prairie Meadows Continues To Give Back in the Face of Crisis

In an effort to sustain its commitment to give back to the community, Prairie Meadows donated six pallets of perishable food items to the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) on Wednesday, March 18. DMARC, a 2019 Prairie Meadows Betterment Grant recipient, is an interfaith organization that manages a Food Pantry Network consisting of 14 separate food pantry sites, a Mobile Food Pantry, two food warehouses, and numerous community supporters.

“It’s more important than ever to support one another and offer assistance in this time of great need,” said CEO Gary Palmer. “Here at Prairie Meadows, we’ve always believed in the well-being of people. With this global crisis, we must remember that compassion breeds strength. And that begins in your own backyard.”



Earlier that same day, Prairie Meadows also reopened their semi-truck parking lot to truck drivers traveling coast to coast.

“We value the efforts of hard-working truck drivers. They’re still on the job making sure everyone gets the supplies they need,” said Palmer. “For anyone on the frontlines — medical workers, retailers, truck drivers, and others — we salute you and thank you.”

Prairie Meadows is making extensive efforts to protect the health and safety of guests, employees, and the community.
