The power of local partnerships

The power of local partnerships

April 7, 2021 in From Denise's Desk Harvest Time Newsletter

Each year, Ozarks Food Harvest works closely with a variety of partners throughout the community to raise awareness and funds for hunger relief. The generosity of these local foundations, corporations, businesses, volunteers and individuals is critical to building and maintaining food security in southwest Missouri.

When it comes to making a difference, no effort is too small, and every action makes an impact. Every time someone decides to donate funds, host a fundraiser, volunteer with us or simply spread the word about the 1 in 5 children and 1 in 7 adults living with food insecurity in the Ozarks, we take one step closer to ending hunger for good.

I sincerely thank everyone who has partnered with The Food Bank in the past. Your compassion is greatly appreciated. If you haven’t been involved with us before, now is the time. Every dollar donated will help provide four meals, and each hour of volunteer time helps provide 105 meals. I would love to chat with you more about getting involved with our mission.

Remember, it’s not just donations or volunteer time that change the landscape of hunger—it’s the collective efforts of our community. Thank you for partnering with us to create lasting change in southwest Missouri! Together, we can Transform Hunger into Hope.
