On the third Tuesday of every month, Neighbors in Need distributes food at Calvary Chapel in Buffalo, Missouri, the Dallas County seat.
September is Hunger Action Month at The Food Bank. A thirty-day campaign devoted to hunger-relief education, awareness, and advocacy. All month long, community members and business partners help Ozarks Food Harvest bring attention to the issue of hunger in southwest Missouri.
“Volunteering is at the heart of all FFA chapters,” James Asher shares. Asher is the National FFA sponsor in Willard, Missouri. “If you look across the state, or even on a national level, you’ll see FFA out there volunteering. We like to do a service-based project for the community; it brings out the best in our students.” In addition to other volunteer efforts, the chapter he leads gives an entire day of volunteering to Ozarks Food Harvest each month.
