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



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

� -Winston S. Churchill

FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT & CEO: Thanks to compassionate donors like you, we believe we can successfully provide enough food to close the meal gap. On behalf of all of us at Ozarks Food Harvest, thank you.


e are truly humbled by the incredible support of our generous community. Our compassionate donors have met a $700,000 J.E. & L.E. Mabee Foundation Challenge Grant, and we have begun building a 56,000 squarefoot expansion. Construction is well underway, and a grand opening of the new warehouse space will take place this summer. Our new building will mean so much. It will mean more room to accept, process and store food donations, more fresh food in our dedicated produce cooler, more freezer space, more space for volunteer projects and more families helped. Currently, we are providing 16.8 million meals each year to more than 261,000 unduplicated individuals annually.

But, as you may have already heard us mention, that leaves a meal gap of 14 million more meals needed by food insecure individuals in our 28 counties. We are looking forward to the day when we no longer have to turn away a million pounds of food a year because of lack of space, leaving children, families and seniors without needed food. 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. Take Chris’ story for example. He is a 23-year-old in West Plains with a family to feed. His

experience is an example of how important it is that fresh, healthy food is available to everyone. “We have two young children,” Chris said. “They love the fresh fruits and veggies. Produce is hard to find in West Plains. We value the natural food and it is disappointing when we do not have access to them ... We are just trying to get by. There are not enough job resources in West Plains.” We’re honored that you have trusted us with your time, food and treasure. You are the reason we have grown so quickly each year to help our neighbors with food assistance.

WEEKEND BACKPACK PROGRAM One in five 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 1,600 children benefit from this life-saving program that began in 2003. One child shared: “I love the food. You people were a big help. Thank you so much. You are awesome!” Springfield schools
