Nearly 5,000 meals raised on Fares for Food Day

More than $3,800 was raised as part of Fares for Food Day – good for 4,950 meals to be served this giving season. The money collected on DART buses Thursday, December 11, is being donated to the Des Moines Area Religious Council (DMARC) Food Pantry Network, the largest food pantry network in Iowa with sites in Ankeny, Des Moines, Johnston, Urbandale and West Des Moines. Clients receive a four-day supply of food (12 meals) every month, meaning the DART donation will provide more than 400 people with food for one month.

No DART service on Thanksgiving Day

DART will adjust bus service on Thursday and Friday, Nov. 27 and 28, 2014, for the Thanksgiving holiday. Regular service will resume on Saturday, Nov. 29.
