Drive to Feed Kids

Even in the nation’s agricultural heartland, 1 in 5 Missouri children don’t know where their next meal will come from. 

Throughout the YF&R Conference, Missouri Farm Bureau, Missouri Farmers Care and Ford Motor Company are teaming up to raise money to combat childhood food insecurity in Missouri through the Drive to Feed Kids.

You can help in TWO ways:

1. Give. Ford has generously pledged to match up to $5,000 in financial contributions.

2. Pack Meals. On Saturday 2 PM – 5 PM we have a goal of packing 25,000 meals that will be delivered to the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.
