Missouri Food Bank/ Food Pantry Resource List
We get contacted from people outside of our service area that are in desperate need of assistance. Just yesterday a woman had contacted me and said she applied for emergency food benefit and was approved for a family of 4 for the amount of $18.00. She was devastated and never thought she would be in a position where she needed to ask for help. Asking for help that turned quickly into pleading for help because even as a working single mother, paying for day care having three children that can not take care of themselves and an absent father coupled with this increasingly horrific economy, raising inflation, gas prices and food prices she was at a pivotal point where asking was on the verge of pleading and begging anyone who would listen. Her local pantry was over an hour away and very limited resources. Thankfully, I knew someone that was able to help. That is not always the case. Everyone is in a very tight and difficult season.
What do we do? Our focus and ability has been to serve those in our area and surrounding areas, including Daviess, Harrison, Gentry, Grundy, Mercer, Worth and if possible adjoining counties as able. I have compiled a list of Missouri Food Banks/ Food Pantries for those who are out of our area so that they can find assistance and get the desperate food they need. We are all in this together trying to make a difference the best we can.
