FY 2019 Honor Roll of Donors & Annual Report July 1, 2018–June 30, 2019

Transforming Hunger into Hope™ across southwest Missouri


“No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another.� 1

-Charles Dickens


A note from the Board President & CEO Thank you for Transforming Hunger into Hope with us. Every day, thousands of people in the Ozarks visit food pantries. These individuals are hardworking single mothers with toddlers to feed; seniors who can’t afford their medications; homeless families who have nowhere else to turn. But because of you, all of these individuals have something to eat. Your compassion and sustained generosity help put meals on the table each and every day. We’ve been accepting, processing, storing and distributing more food than ever because of our 56,000 square-foot warehouse expansion, thanks to generous donors like you. The space allowed us to provide 18.5 million meals to families facing hunger. Nearly 30 million meals are needed to close the meal gap, and we will continue to press on toward that distribution goal. This year, Ozarks Food Harvest and its agencies served more than 261,000 unduplicated individuals across 28 counties. That’s 261,000 people who could pay rent for the month and feed their kids; 261,000 people who could keep the lights on and put dinner on the table; 261,000 people who didn’t have to worry about where their next meal would come from. And that’s all because of you.

Every single gift to Ozarks Food Harvest makes a difference in the life of someone struggling with hunger. Donations help kids like Matthew, a recipient of our Weekend Backpack Program. “I’m thankful for the food because it really helped me and my family. We’re very happy now that we get the food instead of asking other people for money. Thank you for all the food you give us,” he shared. Thank you so much for trusting us with your time, treasure and food donations. Thanks to you, we can continue to Transform Hunger into Hope in southwest Missouri.

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.

food & Fund drives

Businesses, organizations, churches and individuals host food and fund drives to help The Food Bank each year. Did you know that in FY 2019, 287 food and fund drives were hosted, collecting 181 tons of food?

In FY2019, Ozarks Food Harvest drivers and member agencies picked up 5,934,756 pounds of food from local retailers. Currently, 131 retailers participate in the program within The Food Bank’s 28-county service area. 46 34 11 9 8 5 4 3 3 2 1 1 1 1 1 1
