Ozarks Food Harvest FY16 Annual Report

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



To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. -Ralph Waldo Emerson


FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT & CEO: We are confident that in the near future we will be able to close the meal gap in the Ozarks. That is only possible because of your compassion. On behalf of all of us at Ozarks Food Harvest, thank you.


his is an exciting time for Ozarks Food Harvest. We’ve been blessed with several years of record distribution, an increase in our agency network and we’re helping more people in more ways than ever before. We’re also hopeful that this time next year we’ll be in the midst of construction of our distribution center addition, thanks to your incredible support of the Ending Hunger, Building Hope capital campaign. In the eight years since we moved into our current facility, we have maximized the space available and can no longer grow and accept more food. That’s a big problem because we know we’re only halfway to closing the meal gap in southwest Missouri. Today, we’re distributing 15 million meals annually across the Ozarks. We’re honored that you

have trusted us with your time, food and treasure. You are the reason we have grown so quickly to help 261,000 of our neighbors each year with food assistance. But our job isn’t done. We need to double the number of meals we’re providing to meet the need. We are confident this building addition will give us the capacity to, in collaboration with charitable and government partners, provide more than 30 million meals annually, effectively closing the meal gap. You, our generous supporters, understand this building is much more than simply a building. It will provide hope to people in our community who struggle

with the most basic necessities. Adam, a middle schooler at Pipkin, shared a powerful story with us about how your support of the Weekend Backpack Program helped him through unimaginable struggles. “This food bag has helped me out a lot because we were homeless and we had no food or water and those food bags help us to eat and survive,” Adam said. “We are still struggling, so thank you so much.” Your gifts help kids like Adam survive and thrive. On behalf of all of us at The Food Bank, thank you for your compassion. Together, we can solve hunger in the Ozarks.

WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAM One in four kids worry about where their food 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. More than 1,660 children benefit from this life-saving program that began in 2003. One child shared: “I enjoy the food every week. It helps support my family. Thank you for the food!” Springfield schools

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. The program rescues product from grocery stores that does not meet standards for resale, but remains safe for consumption.
