Lent Fish Drive 2019

Lent Fish Drive 2019

February 8, 2019 in Food drive Get Involved

This Lenten season, help support families facing hunger by hosting a fish-themed food drive.

In 2015, the community began “fishing” for struggling families and neighbors through a food drive that collects high-protein fish products during Lent.

Churches, businesses, schools and other organizations are welcome to participate in the 5th annual drive anytime between March 6 and April 18.

Collected fish items will benefit the one in five children and one in seven adults who face food insecurity in the Ozarks. Fish contains many nutrients and has a high protein value, and it is requested by many people who receive food assistance through our network of 270 hunger-relief partners.

Ozarks Food Harvest will gladly accept all donations collected during the Lent Fish Drive. However, if your organization already has a pantry you closely work with, we are happy to help you coordinate a drive for them. By doing so, we will be able to keep track of the pounds donated and measure the collective impact.

Ozarks Food Harvest will provide the necessary supplies for the drive.

Register your fish drive here.
