Help bring $100,000 from the Walmart Foundation to the Ozarks!

Ozarks Food Harvest was chosen as one of only five nonprofit finalists in the entire state for a chance to receive $100,000 from the Walmart Foundation Associate Choice Program. Now through August 13, Walmart and Sam’s Club associates in Missouri will have the chance to cast an online vote at for the charity they feel is most deserving of the grant award. Read the press release.

Here’s why YOU should encourage any Walmart or Sam’s Club Associates you know to VOTE FOR OZARKS FOOD HARVEST:

• For every $1 donated The Food Bank distributes $10 worth of food. That means a $100,000 gift to Ozarks Food Harvest translates into One Million Dollars worth of food and services in Missouri!

• Ozarks Food Harvest serves more than 300 nonprofit member organizations and can provide hunger relief grants to these agencies needing the most assistance! To learn more about hunger in Missouri, read the Hunger Study 2010 or the recent Child Food Insecurity study.

• Ozarks Food Harvest’s Weekend Backpack Program™ provides nearly 30,000 backpacks full of nutritious child-friendly foods to the most at-risk students within The Food Bank’s service area.
