Dear Friends, 2012 was yet another monumental year for Ozarks Food Harvest. We surpassed our annual distribution goal, providing more than 10 million meals across 28 Missouri counties. We built even more relationships, adding new child and senior feeding sites and expanding our Retail Pick-Up Program. We developed more partnerships, serving more charities that feed struggling families. And we initiated more programs, including SNAP assistance and a school food pantry. It’s easy to see that “more” was a big part of our year. Yet unfortunately, there are still more mouths to feed. The landmark Map the Meal Gap study tells us “food insecurity” better defines the condition of the population we serve, as opposed to “poverty.” And especially in this slow economic recovery, thousands of families are still unable to stand their ground. A large part of the 173,000 food insecure people in southwest Missouri are actually living above the poverty level, making them ineligible for any federal assistance and forces them into the charitable food distribution network. Most importantly, this study tells us that on top of all existing anti-hunger food distribution programs— government and private—there is a missing meal gap of roughly 30 million, or 36 million pounds. We’ve made major strides, doubling distribution since moving into our new home, the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief, in 2009. But there is more work is to be done. This annual report highlights the continued growth of Ozarks Food Harvest and illustrates our response to the ever-increasing need. We will continue on this path in 2013, as our visionary board and staff unveiled our most recent three-year strategic plan: Feed, Strengthen, Lead. The aggressive initiative goals aim to find greater efficiency and productively. We simply have to be the best at what we do. Ozarks Food Harvest doesn’t succeed, however, without tremendous support and talent of our dedicated staff and board, hardworking partner network, and generous donors and volunteers who continue to see The Food Bank as the asset it is. Without these partnerships, we would be unable to continue serving our region. There is only one southwest Missouri food bank, and you make it possible. Thank you for continuing to invest in a hunger-free future for the Ozarks.
TODD SHERMAN Board President

THANKS TO YOU , WE S U R PA SSE D O U R AN N UAL D IS TR IBU TION G OAL O F 1 2 M I L L I O N P OU N DS — T HE EQ U IVA LE N T OF 1 0 M I L L I O N ME A LS . The food, water and supplies distributed were valued at more than $20 million, and the amount of food provided to children, families and seniors in need was double the amount distributed since completing the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief in 2009. More than 170,000 individuals are served by Ozarks Food Harvest’s programs and partners, compared to roughly 50,000 five years ago. With our strong network, expanded programs and growing support from individuals, corporations and foundations, we are one step closer to ending hunger every day. Missouri families across 28 counties—nearly 20,000 square miles—are served by OFH and its network of nonprofit organizations.

HIGHLIGHTS FROM FY 2012 INCLUDE: P R O G R A M E X PA N S I O N occurred across the board. Throughout this annual report, you will see the number of Backpack Program schools increased, the Mobile Food Pantry program distributed to more communities, pass-through grants were awarded to dozens of OFH-member agencies, new partners joined the Retail Pick-Up Program and so much more – all thanks to you.
A SUPERIOR FOOD S A F E T Y R AT I N G was awarded to
The Food Bank after a rigorous inspection from AIB International, the leading thirdparty inspection organization for the global food industry. OFH was only the sixth food bank in the nation to achieve the highest possible rating.
A P I LOT S C H O O L F O O D PA N T R Y was implemented at Hillcrest
High School in Springfield to help reach an older population of students who are food insecure, yet do not benefit from Ozarks Food Harvest’s existing childhood hunger initiatives such as the Weekend Backpack Program.
THE SNAP OUTREACH P R O G R A M was established at OFH
near the tail end of FY 2012, yet The Food Bank still helped generate more than $100,000 in benefit dollars – spent on food at local retailers. The SNAP benefits provided thousands of meals to Ozarks families and seniors who otherwise may have not applied for the safety-net.

Kids Cafe © & the Summer Food Program Ozarks Food Harvest partner after-school sites and summer programs served more than 92,000 meals, including breakfast, lunch and dinner, and more than 45,000 snacks for a total of more than 137,000 meals and snacks served. After-school & Summer Food Program sites provide free meals and snacks to children at a variety of community locations where kids already congregate such as Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs, churches, schools and community centers.

Mobile Food Pantry ™ The Mobile Food Pantry program brings truckloads full of food and supplies directly to community members who either do not have access to an OFHmember food pantry, or the closest pantry cannot store perishable items in bulk. Utilizing an adapted beverage truck and a tractor-trailer donated by the Rotary Clubs of Springfield, The Food Bank’s “pantries on wheels” bring food to families living in poverty and to those needing help for the very first time. • More than 440,000 meals (530,000 lbs.) were delivered via the Mobile Food Pantry program in FY 2012, reaching nearly 21,000 individuals. • The trucks traveled 5,850 miles for nearly 50 drops in more than 10 counties.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program In early 2012, just before OFH’s FY12 ended, a SNAP Outreach Program was established to raise awareness about food assistance benefits for eligible,non-participating individuals in need. OFH provides assistance in applying for SNAP benefits, reducing barriers to accessing food assistance programs. • Only 41% of Feeding America clients receive SNAP benefits even though 88% are potentially eligible based on their income. • Since the program’s inception, more than 23,000 SNAP meals can be attributed to OFH outreach, meaning the estimated local economic impact generated is more than $665,000! 8
Senior Food Box Program The Food Bank’s Senior Food Box Program supplements the diets of low-income seniors with nutritious USDA commodity foods at 17 locations across 15 Missouri counties. • Each month, OFH is able to provide 2,000 income-eligible seniors — age 60 or older — with healthy food by working with senior centers and low-income senior housing facilities. • Annually, 24,000 boxes are assembled solely by Ozarks Food Harvest volunteers and distributed by The Food Bank. That’s more than 500,000 meals for seniors!

Stric kland, at righ t, is a Springfiel d senior who receives a bo x of food from OFH each m onth.

THE RETAIL PICK-UP PROGRAM rescues product from local grocery stores that do not meet standards for resale, but remain safe for consumption.
The Walmart Foundation and the Missouri Walmart Advisory Council chose to support Ozarks Food Harvest through the State Giving Program by granting more than $176,000 for a new refrigerated semi-truck. It’s en route daily, transporting perishble food to OFH pantries and feeding sites across the Ozarks. A typical run includes eight to 10 deliveries, ranging from 15 to 20,000 pounds each – that’s up to 16,600 meals each trip!

“I’ve volunteered [at OFH] the past two months and will keep coming back. I really enjoy it and it’s great to feel I’m doing a little bit to help others.
