Charlie O’Reilly: Your support of capital campaign provides hope

February 16, 2017 in Charlie's Corner Harvest Time Newsletter

Charlie's Corner3Greetings from the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief!

Along with my friends at Ozarks Food Harvest, I want to share how pleased I am to be a part of the Ending Hunger, Building Hope capital campaign. This is an opportunity for important growth to meet the needs of the men, women and children in southwest Missouri who struggle with the harsh reality of hunger.

More than 10 years ago I became involved with the original capital campaign to build Ozarks Food Harvest’s current facility. My family and I realized the great need for a larger food bank with more space to accept and process donations and better equipment to serve the need.

Bart Brown: Hunger linked to health

December 20, 2016 in Bart's Hope Notes Harvest Time Newsletter

View More: http://twintownstudios.pass.us/ozark-food-harvestThe holiday season is a time when many of us think about food more often than the rest of the year. With Thanksgiving dinners and Christmas parties with family and friends, it’s certainly the season of eating.

The folks we provide meals to across the Ozarks are also thinking about food this time of year, and all year long. But unfortunately, thinking about food when hungry leaves our neighbors feeling afraid and anxious.

When you don’t have enough to make ends meet, and food seems out of reach, too many of the people we serve don’t feel they have the ability to buy smart at the grocery store to supplement food from our pantries.
