February is National Canned Food Month

February 4, 2020 in Food Bank News Food drive

Make a difference during National Canned Food Month this February.

If you’ve ever taken a tour, volunteered or participated in a food drive with Ozarks Food Harvest, you may have noticed the abundance of canned foods.

Canned foods are essential for families facing hunger because they’re easy to prepare and ready to eat. For a family struggling to make ends meet, nonperishable canned foods they pick up at a local pantry can be the difference between a bare cabinet and a balanced meal on the dinner table.

Consider donating a handful of canned food items to Ozarks Food Harvest this month.

Most-needed items include:

  • Canned meat, such as fish
  • Beans
  • Soups and stews
  • Vegetables
  • Fruit
  • Every donation makes a difference! Drop off canned foods at Ozarks Food Harvest anytime this month, or sign up to host a food drive. Thank you for your partnership!
