Lent Fish Drive 2023

Lent Fish Drive 2023

February 3, 2023 in Food drive

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

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

Churches, businesses, schools and other organizations are welcome to participate in the 9th annual drive anytime between February 22nd – April 8th.

Collected donations will benefit the one in five children and one in six 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.

Since its inception, the Lent Fish Drive has helped provide nearly 42,000 meals for our neighbors. Together we can raise even more this year!

Register your drive here, email Allie Smith or call 417-865-3411 x162 with any questions you may have.
