Giving Tuesday 2020 helps provide 100,000 meals

December 2, 2020 in Food Bank News

Thank you so much to everyone who donated on #GivingTuesday! Generous donors raised $72,390 to help provide 289,560 meals for families facing hunger this holiday season.

Your generosity allows The Food Bank to support nearly 30,000 individuals each week. 2020 has been quite the year, and we couldn’t have made it through without your help. Thank you again!!

Hunger is prevalent in our community, especially in the midst of COVID-19. We need your help to continue providing meals throughout the Ozarks!

4 ways to get involved

Become a monthly donor

Monthly gifts are an excellent way to show your support for hunger relief in southwest Missouri. Sign up through our donate page, or contact Micah Rudd for more information.


Volunteer with us

Every hour of volunteer time helps provide about 100 meals. Volunteer in the warehouse, at a Mobile Food Pantry or in our garden. Currently, our greatest need for volunteer help is during weekday sessions, particularly in the afternoons. Garden volunteers are always needed, too!


Host a fundraiser

Every dollar donated helps provide $10 worth of groceries for children, families and seniors in need. Host an online fundraiser with your business, group, family or friends and help raise awareness about the need for hunger relief.


Give a year-end gift

2020 is quickly coming to a close. Make your year-end gift now to ensure families can put a hot meal on the table this Christmas.


Thank you for supporting hunger relief in the Ozarks!
