At the November Crossroads, Rev. Sarai Rice will address food insecurity in Greater Des Moines – who’s hungry, why, and what the future might look like for the community. She will also explore the way in which different parties and perspectives frame issues of hunger and poverty and how these frames determine our ability to find solutions.
Sarai Schnucker Rice, Executive Director of the Des Moines Area Religious Council, has been with DMARC for 10 years. She is a graduate of Northeast Missouri State University (now Truman University) and Yale Divinity School. Prior to beginning her work with DMARC, Rev. Rice served as an Interim Presbytery Executive for the Presbyteries of the Twin Cities Area and North Central Iowa. She has also taught at Memphis Theological Seminary (Cumberland Presbyterian) in Memphis, Tennessee, served as a co-pastor at Northminster Presbyterian Church in Ames, IA, and was the Executive Director of Ecumenical Ministries of Iowa. Sarai currently serves on the boards of the Polk County Extension Council, the Center for Social Ministry, and the Iowa Hunger Coalition, and chairs the Finance Committee for the Presbytery of Des Moines.
