Transforming Hunger into Hope for 1 in 4 people in the Ozarks



We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.


-Winston Churchill

FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT & CEO: Thank you for believing in the mission of Ozarks Food Harvest and showing compassion for those who struggle with hunger. Your support has allowed us to help more people than ever.


zarks Food Harvest and its nearly 200 member agencies are serving more children, families and seniors than ever before. One in four people in southwest Missouri now rely on The Food Bank for assistance. It’s an incredibly important task — and it means more than we will ever realize for the people who desperately need help. Like the children who go home to an empty fridge on the weekends, the seniors who must choose between medicine and food and the parents who cannot seem to stretch their paycheck to the end of the month. We often say that the food Ozarks Food Harvest provides is more than food, it’s hope. Katherine, a Springfield mom, shared her experience with us and demonstrated how true that statement is for so many.

Just four years ago, Katherine and her family were homeless. “I’ve gone without eating,” she said. “I don’t like to think about it.” Since then, Katherine and her family have been able to drastically improve their lives. “In the last four years we bought a home, we own two vehicles, we’ve got three beautiful children and one on the way. I just like to think how good the future can be.” In fiscal year 2014, Ozarks Food Harvest distributed a record 15 million pounds of food, expanded many of its programs and received honors for its high standards and performance. The Food Bank’s staff, board,

volunteers and donors believe strongly in the mission of Transforming Hunger into Hope because they know the difference the gift of food can make in a person’s life. Katherine said she doesn’t think she could have made it without the help provided by Ozarks Food Harvest. “It’s a tremendous blessing,” she said. “I look forward to the time when I can go in and I can be the one to volunteer instead of being the one to receive.” On behalf of the 260,000 people in southwest Missouri who rely on Ozarks Food Harvest, thank you for showing support and compassion for those facing hunger.

Hunger into Hope.

The Food Bank has seen the number of clients seeking food assistance grow from 155,000 in 2009 to currently over 260,000 annually — a 69 percent increase.

WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAM One in four children in southwest Missouri don’t know where their next meal is coming from. This program provides kids with a bag of nutritious, child-friendly food to take home over the weekends, when they might otherwise go hungry. One teacher shared, “It is a humbling experience to see the appreciation k these children have for the simple SCHOOLS COUNTIES FOOD BAGS gift of food.”
