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

TM


“

No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.

�

-Charles Dickens


FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT & CEO: Your belief in our mission of Transforming Hunger into Hope is crucial to helping thousands of people across the Ozarks in need of food. Thank you for your support in solving hunger for our community.

F

or yet another year, we saw record growth. In FY 2015, Ozarks Food Harvest provided 14 million meals to those in need through our network of hunger-relief partners. We know that every meal has a story behind it. And each person who gives of their time, food and funds is shaping our collective story of solving hunger in the Ozarks. From the food retailer with a passion for helping others, to the farmer sharing his crops, to the family supporting their community with their treasure and to the child collecting cans of food instead of birthday presents. It takes a community of people, working side-by-side with The Food Bank, to ensure fewer people go to bed hungry. This year we’re proud of what

we accomplished together. For the people who benefit from your generosity, food is more than a meal. It relieves a burden for people who just don’t know how they will make ends meet. This simple gift can truly change someone’s life. Cassie is a 36-year-old mother of two who gets food from a pantry in Springfield. “When things get hard, you keep wiping your feet at the door and you just keep going,” she shared. “My husband works, but when you pay for utilities, rent, car payment and health insurance payments, we’re broke. It is not enough,

and I wish it was.” Cassie says the food from the pantry gives her one less worry, and she knows that she’ll get through this difficult time. “The food is a great help to our family ... for Ozarks Food Harvest to provide food for the people in need is them being a blessing,” she said. “I think Ozarks Food Harvest has the key about loving thy neighbor.” When you give to Ozarks Food Harvest, you’re providing an essential gift — hope. On behalf of all the people we serve, thank you for all you do to help us solve hunger in the Ozarks. We’re so grateful.

WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAM One in four children in southwest Missouri might not know where their next meal will come 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 child shared how important the food is to her: “Sometimes we are poor and it’s k hard. But you’re the one who helps us ... SCHOOLS COUNTIES FOOD BAGS it’s a wonderful thing.”

14 MILLION MEALS

RECORD-BREAKING distribution year

More than 16.8 million pounds of food, or 14 million meals, were provided in FY15, making it yet another record year for Ozarks Food Harvest!

That increase in distribution means hard-working moms don’t have to skip a meal so their kids can eat. Children will have nutritious meals on the weekend when school lunches are unavailable. And seniors with a fixed income will be able to purchase prescriptions and groceries.

– Charlie O’Reilly O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief

Special Events HUNGERTHON 2014 The 16th annual radio-thon on Alice 95.5 with Kevin & Liz exceeded its goal of $125,000, raising $130,624 to provide 435 at-risk children with Weekend Backpack Program food bags. Since 1999, nearly $1.5 million has been raised through Hungerthon.

RETAIL PICK-UP PROGRAM Ozarks Food Harvest leads the way for Feeding America food banks when it comes to its Retail Pick-Up Program. OFH was one of the first food banks in the U.S. to establish a program of this kind, serving as a pilot food bank for Walmart.
