Des Moines food rescue group says United Way unfairly pulled $50K in funding


Axios Des Moines: A local food rescue group says it lost up to $50,000 in funding that it regularly received from United Way of Central Iowa. Eat Greater Des Moines told Axios the funding loss stems from a letter about leftover meals that went to waste at an event at Prairie Meadows. The conflict shows how smaller nonprofits in Des Moines are beholden to larger groups like United Way, Aubrey Alvarez, executive director of EGDM, said. United Way says it severed ties because of the behavior of some EGDM staff on previous occasions.
