We stand with people of color against racism, violence, and hate. Enriching communities and gathering together is the core of our work at The Wallace Centers of Iowa and how we actualize the Wallace family legacy. Now more than ever, we value our work that creates seats at the table for everyone. As an organization, we are dedicated to equitable, inclusive programming and services where everyone is welcome.
WCI has postponed or canceled all indoor public events through Sept. 1. Our buildings are currently closed but the prairie path at the Country Life Center is open for social-distance walking. Staff are available by phone and email. We’ll continue to monitor the evolving public health situation. Updates will be provided as they become available.
At the current time, we’re offering online cooking classes, Pizza on the Prairie and the Prairie Art Exhibit. Volunteers are needed for the Garden for Good. To help with your at-home meal preparation, 20 of Chef Katie’s favorite recipes are posted on our Farm to Table page. The Mickle Center Shared Use Kitchen continues to support small food businesses.
