Summer Food

Thank you for donating the granola bars. I love them! We have been eating them every day and they are delicious. Thank you so much for helping us out this summer. Aubrey, age 9

Child sites serve free meals and snacks during the summer

The Food Bank sponsors several program sites over the summer months when children do not have access to free or reduced meals at school. The free meals and snacks provided at Ozarks Food Harvest Summer Food partner locations allow kids to stop worrying about food and start focusing on fun. This program is made possible thanks to the USDA’s SFSP, or the Summer Food Service Program, which reimburses participating agencies for associated costs.
