  • Description: The Des Moines council’s food pantry, located on the second floor of 1426 Sixth Ave., Des Moines, operates Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. It is open to anyone who needs food for themselves or family. The food pantry also strives to stock diapers, health and hygiene products for those in need, but these items are not always in stock. People seeking food pantry assistance can schedule an appointment in person at 8:00 a.m. Monday through Friday. (Individuals are strongly encouraged to arrive by 7:50 a.m. to ensure their place in line.) Social services staff will schedule an appointment for later that same day. Those who would need to receive food during one of the two evening food pantries are encouraged to schedule an appointment by calling 282-8328 and asking for the Social Services Department. However, the food pantry is also available without an appointment between 9:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday to those facing an emergency. Those individuals may seek help in person by coming to 1426 Sixth Ave., and asking to speak to the Social services staff.
