JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. —The number of Missourians facing hunger would fit into Busch Stadium more than 15x. Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance recognizes the need to obtain and distribute food to hungry families across the state. For the eighth consecutive year, insurance agents and producers, customer service representatives, regional coordinators and many volunteers are accepting donations from April 5, 2023 to April 30, 2023 at office locations across the state. The 2023 Home Run Against Hunger campaign is one of several events Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance organizes annually to help those in need.

Unfortunately, ONE in every SEVEN Missouri children are faced with not knowing when they will eat their next meal on a regular basis. You can help provide hope by donating. Missouri’s food banks are working to provide relief to many families struggling to make ends meet but they can’t do it alone.  A donation of only $25 can provide up to 100 meals to our neighbors in need.

Help us fight hunger.  The most-needed items include: canned meat, canned fruits and vegetables, beans, rice, cereal, peanut butter, soups and pasta.  Drop off donations (food or funds) at your local Missouri Farm Bureau office between April 5, 2023 and April 30, 2023, or text MOFB2023 to 44-321.  All donations serve local communities.  

During the campaign’s final days, each Missouri Farm Bureau Insurance office will deliver donations to a local pantry. A statewide grand total of donations in pounds will be announced along with total monetary donations. Last year’s efforts garnered nearly 3 tons of food and over $13,000.
