Transforming Hunger into Hope™ across southwest Missouri

A note from the Board President & CEO Thank you for Transforming Hunger into Hope with us. Year after year, we are astounded by the generosity and continued support of our community. Because of your compassion, a single mother can put dinner on the table, a senior is able to afford his medication and groceries, and food insecure children have plenty of food to eat each weekend. In 2018, we joyfully celebrated the opening of our 56,000 squarefoot warehouse expansion. Completion was made possible by many individual, corporate and foundation donors, and we could not be more grateful for these gifts. In this new space, we are now accepting, processing, storing and distributing more donations for food pantries and hunger relief organizations across our 28-county service area. Ozarks Food Harvest is no longer forced to turn away millions of pounds of food donations each year due to lack of space. We are currently providing 17 million meals each year to more than 261,000 unduplicated individuals in the Ozarks. Nearly 30 million meals are needed to close the meal gap, and with the expansion, we now have the capacity to meet this need.

Each individual who receives food assistance from one of our hunger relief organizations has a story. When there’s not enough money left for groceries because of job loss, medical issues or other financial stressors, each of these children, families and seniors have somewhere to turn.

“For it is in giving that we receive.” -St. Francis of Assisi


Your gifts help people like Morgan, who recently moved to Springfield to take care of her mother. She is currently receiving food assistance through one of Ozarks Food Harvest’s hunger relief programs. “With my mom being sick and things being so stressful right now, this gives me one less thing to worry about…and it helps me get the right nutrition,” she shared. We’re honored that you have trusted us with your donations. Thanks to you, we can continue to put food on the table for food insecure families throughout the year.

Thanks To you Ozarks Food Harvest is distributing more food than ever before.

weekend backpack program

“I love my backpack because I‘m able to help support my family. I share with my siblings.”

One in five children in the Ozarks don’t know where their next meal will come from. This program provides kids with a bag of nutritious, child-friendly food to take home each weekend when they might otherwise go hungry. More than 1,600 children benefit from this program each year.

Retail Pick-up program

Ozarks Food Harvest leads the way for Feeding America food banks when it comes to its Retail Pick-Up Program. We were 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 partners with retailers to rescue food that is no longer sellable, but does remain safe for consumption.

Volunteer & food drives

Volunteers give their time and talents to The Food Bank in a variety of ways, including hosting community food drives. Did you know that in FY 2018, 252 food drives were hosted by volunteers, collecting 220 tons of food?

In FY2018, Ozarks Food Harvest drivers and member agencies picked up roughly 5,606,537 pounds of food from local retailers. Currently, 116 retailers participate in the program within The Food Bank’s 28-county service area. 37 34 10 9 7 5 4 2 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1

The Food Bank’s History Where we started

Since 1983, Ozarks Food Harvest has been committed to bridging the meal gap across the Ozarks and meeting the needs of those struggling with hunger. Since opening the O’Reilly Center for Hunger Relief in 2009, Ozarks Food Harvest has increased distribution from six million to 17 million meals provided annually. Unfortunately, the need across our 28-county service area has continued to outpace distribution, and food insecurity remains high. In order to close the meal gap, The Food Bank would need to distribute nearly 30 million meals annually. That’s millions of more meals than we are currently serving.

WArehouse expansion Facts

Key features of the new space

With the additional 56,000 square feet of space, the warehouse has nearly doubled in size. The new dedicated produce cooler will ensure produce lasts longer and maintains peak nutritional value. Increased processing space will improve the efficiency of daily operations and increase warehouse safety. A larger volunteer center will allow for increased community engagement to support hunger relief efforts. More volunteers will be able to process a greater volume of donations, and quick processing efforts will put fresh food into clients’ hands sooner, preventing waste.


Most importantly, the new space will allow Ozarks Food Harvest, in collaboration with charitable and governmental partners, the capacity to provide 24 million pounds— 30 million meals annually—for children, families and seniors in the Ozarks.

The expanded facility was absolutely critical to improve food access in southwest Missouri. Thanks to your generosity, we can now take advantage of missed opportunities by accepting, processing and distributing more nutritious food across the Ozarks.

The future of hunger relief

Where we’re going

Thanks to your generous support of our Ending Hunger, Building Hope campaign, The Food Bank now has the capacity to close the meal gap in southwest Missouri. Additionally, the new space will allow Ozarks Food Harvest to: • Save millions of pounds from being wasted via food rescue and the Retail Pickup Program • Reduce the carbon footprint by decreasing greenhouse gas emissions • Improve access to nutritious food that will allow clients to lead healthier lives • Increase the frequency of healthy, wholesome meals provided


Thank you to our generous Ending hunger, Building Hope Capital Campaign donors! $1,000,000
