THERE IS STILL TIME TO HELP THOSE IN NEED  

As 2018 nears its end, take a moment to reflect on your year. Has it been good to you? If so, we ask you to consider spreading some of that good cheer to those who's year might not have been as positive. Many people in our community are struggling. If you are able, consider giving a gift to help your neighbors in need before 2018 comes to a close.You can donate at our website linked below or through CoMo Gives here.
TO OUR VOLUNTEERS...
THANK YOU!

Over the last year you, our volunteers and supporters, contributed almost 100,000 hours of service at a multitude of locations across all 32 counties in our service area. Buddy Pack preparation, Kids Helping Kids, special events or just individuals whose passions bring them to the volunteer room daily, your commitment to community is remarkable! 2019 brings with it opportunities and ways to celebrate the joy of service. Thank you for such an amazing year and we look forward to the next!
HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVES MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE

Partnership Against Hunger r aised a grand total of $107,319.30, including outright donations, in-kind gifts and sponsorships, and collected 14,720 lbs of food.

One for One raised a grand total of $175,193, including outright donations, in-kind gifts and sponsorships. That's more than double what was raised last year. 3,280 lbs of food were also collected.

These annual food and fund drives make it possible for us to share food and bring hope to neighbors in need throughout the holiday season and beyond.
MOBILE PANTRIES GO WHERE THE NEED IS

A mobile pantry is essentially a food pantry on wheels, taking food right where it is needed most. The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri operates 16 mobile pantry distributions monthly across our 32-county service area. One of the primary benefits of a mobile pantry is its ability to serve those in need in places lacking brick and mortar pantries or with more need than area agencies can meet. Click below to find out more about mobile pantries.
