NDCF is a project of North Des Moines Mutual Aid. It is a shed that contains a refrigerator and shelves for dry goods. A sign on the shed says "Take what you need, leave what you can." St. Andrew's provides space for the fridge.

If you would like to contribute, here are some things that are particularly useful:

  • Fresh fruit is more popular than vegetables

  • Ground beef - label with the date and put in the freezer

  • In addition to groceries, meals for those without cooking facilities are appreciated. Examples they gave were lunchables, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and home-cooked entrees in single servings labeled with the name of the dish and the date

  • Bags of dry dog food

  • The need is always there, but it gets even higher at the end of the month.
