Partnerships Fight Hunger and Raise Awareness during Hunger Action Month

Partnerships Fight Hunger and Raise Awareness during Hunger Action Month

October 1, 2019 in From Denise's Desk Harvest Time Newsletter

Hunger Action Month is always an exciting time at The Food Bank, and this year was no exception. Each September, we partner with local businesses and ask them to take action against hunger. Whether they choose to host food drives, donate funds or raise awareness through social media, our partners demonstrate passion for Ozarks Food Harvest’s mission of Transforming Hunger into Hope.

This year, The Coffee Ethic, Lindberg’s and Mama Jean’s generously donated proceeds from specific items to Ozarks Food Harvest. 417 Escape Artist, 4 By 4 Brewery, Ascend Dental Design, Bank of Missouri, BookMarx, Central Bank, Culture Flock, Gold Mountain and Springfood Podcast all held food and fund drives in September. Sangha Studio and Chabom Tea & Spices displayed and sold empty bowls on behalf of Ozarks Food Harvest. And University Plaza, A Beautiful Mess, Springfield Public Schools and Wrigley & Theo all raised awareness through social media.

Ozarks Food Harvest also partnered with Kevin & Liz from 105.9 KGBX for the 21st annual Hungerthon, Tea Bar & Bites for the Apron Fashion Show & Silent Auction and Panera on Campbell Ave. for Empty Bowls. These events all raised funds to support The Food Bank’s feeding programs, and we are so grateful for everyone who attended and made a donation.

Thank you so much for supporting Ozarks Food Harvest and our partners during this year’s Hunger Action Month. Your donations are sincerely appreciated as we approach the holiday season.

We partner with local businesses to raise food, funds and awareness throughout the entire year. If you would like to start a partnership, just give us a call. Thank you again for your continued support of hunger relief in the Ozarks.
