When the excitement from the holidays starts to fade, families still continue to struggle with hunger in our community. Unfortunately during this time, food and fund drives start to die down.
Springfield Public Schools will participate in Food Fight 2018, Ozarks Food Harvest’s 7th annual district-wide food drive competition, Jan. 15 – 31.

Arvest Bank is continuing its tradition of rallying the community to help its hungry neighbors in southwest Missouri through its annual campaign, 1 Million Meals.
As a friend of Ozarks Food Harvest, you’re aware of the struggles so many of our neighbors face when it comes to providing food for themselves and their families. You’re also aware that when you give to Ozarks Food Harvest, each $1 is making a huge difference for those in need by providing $10 worth of food distribution and services.
