Feed More, Waste Less
Waukee Area Christian Services food rescue program offers an outlet for retailers to provide quality food to those in need and divert the food from ending up in the landfill.
Each week, our WACS van collects hundreds of pounds of produce, dairy, deli, meat, bakery and grocery items from our retail partners in Waukee and West Des Moines. These donated products are distributed to clients throughout the week.
Support from our local retail partners allowed us to distribute 18,000+ pounds of nutritious food this year. WACS is thankful to all of our gracious retail partners who have invested in our mission.
If you too would like to participate, click the contact us button to the right. We accept perishable and shelf-stable food from all retail categories that meet food safety labeling and packaging criteria.
Food Pantry Van
Our cargo van plays an important role in picking up orders and donations from our partners.
The purchase of the van was made possible through a grant from the City of Waukee and Stiver’s Ford Lincoln Waukee. Graphics were provided by Schneider Graphics.
Thank you for this incredible gift!
