Local Communities

Reinvesting in the local communities we serve

Fareway got its start more than 80 years ago in Boone and we are proud to still call Boone County home today. Reinvesting in our local communities and encouraging economic and community development in Boone and the other communities where Fareway stores are located is important to both our history and future.

Boone County Chamber of Commerce
Enhances the economic vitality and quality of life in Boone County by being the leading resource for industrial, retail, tourism, and community betterment initiatives.

Year after year, Fareway continues to stand out as a leader in investing in our local communities. Contributing thousands of dollars and countless volunteer hours, we are grateful to the Fareway team for supporting Boone County Chamber initiatives and events that make Boone County a wonderful place to live and do business.

- Mike Hammond, Director of the Boone County Chamber of Commerce and Boone County Economic Growth Corporation

Boone County Hospital Foundation
Provides resources to Boone County Hospital for equipment, programs, and services that otherwise would not be available.

Fareway is a vital part of the Boone County community, just like our local healthcare system. The Boone County Hospital Foundation can always count on Fareway as an annual Silver Corporate Sponsor. When we ask for extra items to improve our events, they give without hesitation. We are grateful for all they do for our Foundation and the greater community.

- Sara Klute Behn, Executive Director of the Boone County Hospital Foundation

Des Moines Area Community College – Boone Student Activity Center and Fareway Fieldhouse
A public institution serving the educational and career training needs of Iowans, is committed to the lifelong success of its students.

All of us from across the college are delighted and grateful for the generous donation that Fareway has made to this exciting project. It will benefit the entire Boone community. The ‘Fareway Fieldhouse’ will include two basketball and volleyball courts, as well as three baseball and softball batting cages that will drop down from the fieldhouse ceiling. It will be a facility that we can be proud of for many years to come. We thank Fareway for all it does to support so many initiatives important to Iowa.

- Rob Denson, President of DMACC

Heart of Iowa Habitat for Humanity
Community-driven Christian housing ministry developing working partnerships to build and repair decent and affordable housing for families in the heart of Iowa.

Fareway and their employees generously offer support both financially and in-person by volunteering numerous hours lending a hand on our jobsites, helping fight the need for safe, affordable housing in Boone County. Fareway also graciously donated water to keep our volunteers cool and hydrated during the laborious build season. Habitat greatly appreciates Fareway’s willingness to partner with us and provide ongoing support to serve families in need.
