Congratulations to Robotics Retail, a project of Eat Greater Des Moines, for claiming the $30,000 top award in the first Ignite Innovation Challenge! The project will use small convenient robotics vending-machine-style retail outlets that accepts SNAP benefits in addition to other payment methods, to distribute fresh produce at reasonable costs throughout food deserts in Des Moines. Des Moines will be the first in the United States to offer this innovative food delivery model providing improved healthy options for those currently deprived of ready access to healthy food choices.
And a shout-out to Station #1 Records, a project of the Des Moines Social Club, for the runner-up $15,000 award to establish a non-profit full-service record label to manage, promote and distribute local artists and musicians from Des Moines to a national stage.
Mid-Iowa Health Foundation was pleased to partner with The Community Foundation of Greater Des Moines, Bankers Trust, DuPont/Pioneer, The Principal Financial Group, Riley Resource Group, Sammons Financial Group, and United Way of Central Iowa to provide the opportunity and encouragement for these innovative projects to take risks that can result in change that will ignite the work of nonprofits and the issues they are addressing in our community.
