Our Mission

Provide radical hospitality one burrito at a time.


The Urban Bicycle Food Ministry - Des Moines is an interfaith and non-denominational organization. Anyone and everyone is welcome to be a part of this ministry. We do not preach, proselytize or try to convert. 

Since 2014 we have been serving radical hospitality one burrito at a time. Each Thursday of the week all year long we prepare and deliver hundreds of food and personal items by bike and car to those most in need in the greater Des Moines Area.

Urban Bicycle Food Ministry - Des Moines is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. All donations are tax deductible.

UBFM has been such a blessing and encouragement to the area. They consistently provide food, personal care items, and smiles for those who need them the most in our area. It’s been an honor to ride and serve with them.
