The economic impact of COVID-19 has hit low-income families harder than most. Even before the pandemic, one in five rural Missourians lacked reliable access to food. With millions of Americans suddenly out of work, food banks have been stretched to the breaking point.
As a major partner in the Missouri Farmers Care Drive to Feed Kids, Missouri Farm Bureau is raising money for food aid to every part of the state.
Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance has teamed up with Feeding Missouri and the St. Louis Cardinals to raise money for food banks through our Home Run for Hunger program.
Missouri Farm Bureau has also started an Emergency Food Grant Program to match funds raised by county Farm Bureaus. The money will support local programs like food banks, Buddy Backpacks and Ronald McDonald Houses.
To the food bank volunteers working to get food to people in need and everyone donating to help the less fortunate, Missouri Farm Bureau thanks YOU for your service.
