Hope Ministries is currently accepting meal reservations for its Easter delivery program on Saturday, April 3, providing food to those in need. The deadline to reserve is Friday, March 26, at 4:30 p.m.—unless the meal capacity is reached earlier. Those who need a to-go meal can also stop by the Hope Ministries’ Hope Cafe (1310 Sixth Ave.) from 12:30 to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 3. No reservations are needed.
And if you’d like to contribute to the cause, Hope Ministries says it will cost $33,000 to provide the 17,850 meals needed. You can make donations here. You also can volunteer to deliver here.
Hope Ministries will deliver meals to Altoona, Clive, Des Moines, Johnston, Pleasant Hill, Urbandale, West Des Moines and Windsor Heights.
