At Johnston Partnership, we strive to serve our neighbors in need.

Johnston Partnership for a Healthy Community was started over 25 years ago by a group of school nurses within the Johnston Community School District who wanted to help students struggling to get enough to eat. These nurses saw a need and they came together to address it.

Today, the Partnership continues to serve families and individuals in Johnston, and the greater Des Moines community who are at-risk due to financial insecurity.  We do this by creating programs to address specific needs in our community. The Partnership also serves as a catalyst for uniting local organizations and individuals to provide services that are not currently available through other resources.  



Get Involved

Volunteers are the foundation of our organization. They keep the shelves stocked, meet with students weekly, walk alongside clients to find food, greet people as they are picking out clothing, picking up food from our partnering organizations, and serve as an ambassador for the Johnston Partnership. Without their unwavering dedication to help their neighbors in need, we could not serve thousands of our clients in need each month.
