The Food Bank works with 140 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters and other agencies to ensure food gets into the hands of those who need it most. We are the only food bank in the state to provide that food at no charge to other organizations. In mid-Missouri alone, one-in-five families are defined as “food insecure,” which means they don’t know where their next is coming from on a daily basis.
This is where you can help.
From 6a-6p on Wednesday, December 13th you can donate on-location in Columbia and Jefferson City, or you can call the Missouri Pork Association Food Drive Phone Bank at 573-447-6610.

The Food Bank has the ability to turn your $1 donation into $21 worth of groceries for local families in need so your monetary donations really do go a long way this holiday season.
The Food Bank is able to turn your $1 donation into 12 meals- we have changed our message this year to say that we can turn $1 donation into $21 worth of groceries. It’s an easier number for our donors and community members to understand- because we all know the price of groceries at the store!
