What a year and a half it’s been at Ozarks Food Harvest! The Food Bank officially started accepting and processing donations in the 56,000 square-foot warehouse expansion last July, and so much progress has been made in the fight against hunger since then.
Spread good cheer in the community by making a year-end gift to Ozarks Food Harvest. We’re incredibly thankful for the gifts we receive from our generous donors throughout the year, but with 2020 on the horizon, we ask you to consider making one final gift for your hungry neighbors before the year ends.
Thank you SO much to everyone who donated on #GivingTuesday!

After the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday pass, take a moment to give back to those in need. This day of global giving was created in 2012 to encourage people to do good.
If you would like to support Ozarks Food Harvest on Giving Tuesday, visit our donate page or make a donation through our Facebook fundraiser. We need your help to reach our goal of raising $15,000! And thanks to a gift from Feeding Missouri, every donation up to $5,000 will be matched. That means a five-dollar gift will help provide 40 meals!
Thank you for your continued support of hunger relief in the Ozarks, and happy holidays.
