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.

Our relationship with Fareway has continued to grow as the company and our organization pursue a shared vision of community improvement. Fareway has offered financial support and donations of in-kind supplies, and employees have provided many volunteer hours to numerous Chamber events each year. From our perspective they are a corporate partner nonpareil.

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
