The community joined together in a big way for Taste of SoMo on Saturday. Thank you so much to everyone who visited us at our tents, donated tickets and funds and picked up some fun merch! Heartfelt thanks to Downtown Springfield for making us a beneficiary for the event. We can’t wait to share the total meal count with you!
We’re still tallying totals, but so far, Taste of SoMo has helped provide 4,212 meals! Stay tuned for a meal count update.
Donations to The Food Bank tend to dip in the summer months. With school out of session, family vacations and other summer activities, donating isn’t always top of mind. But for food insecure families, summer can be the hungriest time of the year. That’s where Arvest Bank’s Million Meals campaign comes in.
