6-Year-Old Opens Lemonade Stand To Help Food Pantries After Cutbacks

DES MOINES, Iowa — When 6-year-old Oliver Moehlis heard the Des Moines Area Religious Council was cutting back on food provisions for the needy, he wanted to do something.

Oliver heard on the news that DMARC was cutting back food supplies to those in need by 25 percent.

Saturday he launched Oliver's Lemonade Stand. He raised over $100.

Oliver told his Mom that he would like to raise enough money to provide a million meals, so he is challenging other kids to raise money with a lemonade stand to help provide more food.

"I would say, can you do good for your community, by having a lemonade stand," said Oliver.

Oliver is a big fan of Batman. He said if his super-hero tackled the problem he would fly over the house of everyone in need and bring food.
