Tr a n s f o r m i n g H u n ge r i n t o H o p e OZARKS FOOD HARVEST FY2010 & FY2011 HONOR ROLL OF DONORS


Transforming Hunger into Hope. Every dollar you invest in our mission helps us provide seven pounds of food to a family in need. Our volunteers donated nearly 25,000 hours during fiscal years 2010 and 2011—the equivalent of six additional full-time employees. Our donors helped provide nearly 20 million pounds of food from July 2009 through June 2011, enough for 15 million meals. We are so grateful for those who had a part in distributing this record-breaking amount of food. We pride ourselves on getting better return for our dollar than other organizations in the region—providing $10 worth of food distribution and services for every $1 donated. We are locating more salvageable product, purchasing wisely and giving you the best return on your investment by changing lives and doing it efficiently.

Pictured above are employees of Kroger and local Dillon Stores who volunteered at Ozarks Food Harvest to fill backpacks for Joplin children following the May 2011 tornado. Kroger gave the largest disaster relief gift in The Food Bank’s history, $250,000.


Renewing Hope On behalf of the board of directors, staff, partners and those we serve, we’d like to thank you for your support since we moved into the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief. The generosity of donors like you who gave time, money and food, made a difference for 170,000 of our neighbors in need. Since operating out of your new community food bank in July 2009, we’ve increased distribution by 59 percent. We embarked on new Feeding Hope Initiatives—Feeding Children, Feeding Families, and Feeding Seniors—and have reached our goal of distributing 12 million pounds of food annually by fiscal year 2012—the most food distributed in our nearly 30-year history. We were also able to act as tier one responders to the Joplin disaster, thanks to your overwhelming support. More than three million pounds of food and supplies, valued at $5.1 million, were provided to tornado victims, and our work is not finished.

BOARD OF DIRECTORS Todd Sherman, Kraft Foods, Inc.—President

A total of 30 million pounds has been distributed to our network of 250 member charities—a value of $50 million—since we’ve been in our new home. Distribution was also provided to those in need via our direct service programs. This makes Ozarks Food Harvest one of the largest philanthropic institutions in southwest Missouri. Our impact on the region earned OFH its second Economic Impact Award from the Springfield Business Journal, being named the 2009 Chartiable Organization of the Year.

Mike Pinkston, Bank of America—President-elect

More than $300,000 in pass-through grants have been awarded to our agency members, and we co-hosted a comprehensive grant writing seminar free of charge. Our trained staff now offers food safety classes at the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief, which received a Superior Food Safety Rating by AIB International—a score only a quarter of food handling facilities achieve. SNAP outreach is also now provided to our agencies, which assists clients with federal applications for the government program formerly known as food stamps.

Tamara de Wild, O’Reilly Automotive

Clearly, your help makes an impact. In May 2011, we were named the Small Business of the Year by the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. As the first nonprofit to have ever received the award, we understand the significance because it recognizes that nonprofits must operate exceptional businesses to inspire trust and confidence from supporters.

Matt Miller, Sustainable Housing Solutions

We’ve learned through these tough times that we are blessed with a tough family of supporters. Thank you for stretching with us as we again step up to meet the increasing need. Together we Transform Hunger into Hope!

Mapping the “meal gap” Nearly 180,000

people across our 28-county service area do not know where their next meal is coming from. A new study told us that one quarter of these individuals are not eligible for any form of government assistance. Thanks to you, we are able to feed those living in poverty— and this “meal gap” who now rely on our services each month.

More than 28 percent of Ozarks children— 5 percent higher than the national rate—face

food insecurity. And 30 percent do not qualify for any government assistance like free or reduced school meals, but still

need our help.

We simply could not feed these Ozarkers without you!

Tr a n s f o r m i n g H u n g e r i n t o H o p e Ozarks Food Harvest’s nearly 30-year history has been dedicated to

Transforming Hunger into Hope for southwest Missourians in need. Our

in

four-word mission statement provides a beacon for our work. Facing hardship and struggles, there is a tremendous need for food among Ozarkers across all socioeconomic, geographic and demographic spectrums. And, when an EF-5 tornado devastated one of the counties we serve, Ozarks Food Harvest was there to help for the long haul.

Our Impact 3.1 million pounds of food & supplies, valued at $5.1 million, was secured & delivered 170 semi-truckloads traveled 24,000 miles to and from Joplin for a total of 300 deliveries to multiple distribution sites 857 individuals volunteered 2,874 hours of their time to OFH Joplin Relief efforts

“Katrina was nothing like this,” said Feeding America CEO Vicki Escarra, as OFH staffers drove her through Joplin. In the days following the tornado, Feeding America provided hundreds of thousands of pounds of food and supplies to Ozarks Food Harvest for disaster relief. The Missouri Food Bank Association, comprised of the six Feeding America food banks in Missouri, also sprung into action.

We received several notes from child donors to pass on to Joplin kids who had lost loved ones or their homes. One client our Mobile Food Pantry served—37-year-old Summer—told us, “I’m married with three kids and living in a tent in my mother-in-law’s backyard because there isn’t enough room in her one bedroom house. I’m about to lose my job. Most of my clients were killed in the tornado. If it weren’t for Ozarks Food Harvest and this food program, I don’t know what I would do for my family. At least we can keep food in our tent and not have to walk to a shelter to eat for every meal. Thank you!”

Our direct service programs Through the generosity of our donors, Ozarks Food Harvest is able to fund programs that ensure food gets to your hungry neighbors. Whether in schools, after-school community programs or outreach to seniors or low-income families, The Food Bank is getting at the root of hunger and improving lives. Through investment and broadening access, more children, families and seniors are able to get the food they need through our programs.

Pictured are two students who volunteered to create “Hope Notes” for the Weekend Backpacks. The notes of encouragement are included in the weekly food bags. These girls were fifth graders from Campbell United Methodist’s Vacation Bible School. Also pictured are actual program participants’ notes of thanks to The Food Bank. To read more child testimonials, go to ozarksfoodharvest.org/backpacks.html.

Children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals at school are at greater risk of going hungry during the weekends. These students receive backpacks of food on Friday to take home over the weekend, thanks to Ozarks Food Harvest’s Weekend Backpack Program. The Food Bank distributes nearly 1,000 backpacks to 30 area schools in 11 counties, each week, providing 375,000 nutritious meals to kids in fiscal years 2010 & 2011.


& THE

SUMMER FOOD SERVICE PROGRAM

During the school year, our after-school feeding program, Kids Cafe, provides nutritious meals and snacks to children who would otherwise go home to an empty dinner plate. This program served more than 364,000 meals and snacks at 24 locations in 12 counties during fiscal years 2010 & 2011. Children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals during the school year are also at risk of hunger during summer months. Our Summer Food Service Program served more than 146,000 meals and snacks to hungry kids at 20 area sites in 10 counties in 2010 & 2011. These children would otherwise return to school undernourished, which could severely affect their ability to learn.

& SENIOR FOOD BOXES Hunger is very prevalent in the rural communities we serve. Our Mobile Food Pantry program delivers bulk loads of food to central locations in rural areas—or to our member pantries that do not have adequate freezer or cooler space. The Mobile Food Pantry offers a wide variety of foods—both fresh and nonperishable—nearly every week during the year. More than 777,066 pounds were distributed to 10,647 families, or 29,704 individuals, in FY10 & FY11. We also distribute 2,000 senior food boxes to low-income seniors each month, up from 500 in 2009.

Low-income seniors of Nevada, Missouri line up to receive their monthly food box, alongside disabled residents who wait to benefit from OFH’s Mobile Food Pantry. The senior food boxes provided more than 811,000 pounds during fiscal years 2010 & 2011, and they are assembled solely by OFH volunteers. Learn more about these programs at ozarksfoodharvest.org.

If you were omitted from this donor list, your name or information is incorrect or if you do not wish your name to be listed in future publications, please notify Ozarks Food Harvest. Ozarks Food Harvest respects your privacy and personal information. We never sell, trade or rent our supporters’ names. View our complete Donor Privacy Policy at ozarksfoodharvest.org/donorprivacy.html. Thank you.


Our network of member charities Ozarks Food Harvest procures, warehouses and distributes food which is then provided to hungry southwest Missourians through our 250 network partners such as food pantries, soup kitchens, community centers, children’s programs and other feeding sites. Donated food comes from many sources including growers, manufacturers, retailers, food drives and USDA programs. Ninety-seven percent of the food we provide is donated while three percent is purchased by The Food Bank. Our network partners pay a “food safety fee” or shared maintenance fee, an average of 15 cents per pound, to help cover the cost of processing donated food. Purchased food comes from retailers and manufacturers at wholesale cost and is then offered to our network at great savings. Member agencies purchasing through Ozarks Food Harvest allows more food to get to more hungry Ozarkers at a lower cost. Food is delivered directly to 175 of our network partners, and 75 agencies pick up their order at the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief. Currently, Ozarks Food Harvest distributes a record 12 million pounds annually—across 28 counties.
