In September, The Food Bank and iHeartMedia’s 105.9 KGBX were joined by community members and local businesses to raise funds for Ozarks Food Harvest’s Weekend Backpack Program. The 20th annual Hungerthon collected $140,168, which will provide 467 hungry children with nutritious meals for every weekend of the school year.
October is National Pasta Month! The Food Bank is celebrating by collecting pasta items in a month-long food drive. Donors will have the chance to win a swag bag.
Join us for the fifth annual Empty Bowls event! Ozarks Food Harvest and Panera Bread are raising awareness of hunger while supporting The Food Bank’s feeding programs. To participate, stop by Panera on Sept. 28 to make a donation and receive a ceramic or wooden bowl handcrafted by a local artist as well as a meal of soup and bread.
