Ozarks Food Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry receives international attention

November 5, 2007

SPRINGFIELD, Mo.— Ozarks Food Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry program was chosen as one of only two Rotary projects in the country being profiled for Rotary International’s Video Magazine, and according to The Food Bank, a film crew will film the Mobile Food Pantry in action from 1:00-3:00 pm Monday at South Street Christian Church in Springfield.

“We are very proud that the Mobile Food Pantry partnership with Rotary Clubs and Ridewell Suspensions has been selected to be featured as an example of community collaboration across the globe,” Bart Brown, executive director, said.

The finished production will be distributed to Rotary Clubs and their 1.2 million members worldwide, Brown said.

In addition to Ozarks Food Harvest’s Mobile Food Pantry program, the food bank distributes more than four million pounds of food annually to its network of 323 agencies across 29 Ozarks counties, and offers direct relief through its Kids Cafe, Food for Thought and Club F.U.N. programs.
