It is that time of year again for the One For One Holiday Food Drive.
Wednesday, Dec. 16, we will be setup at the corner of Providence and Broadway in Columbia and in the Capital Plaza Hotel parking lot from 6 a.m. – 6 p.m. taking your donations of food and money.
There are about 121,000 people living at or below the poverty line in the 32 counties The Food Bank serves. One in six people in central and northeast Missouri is food insecure. The rate for children is even worse.
The Food Bank is able to provide 15 pounds of food for just $1 so we will ask you to bring $1 or one can of food for each member of your family, pets included.
It is our opportunity to play a significant role in helping those less fortunate individuals in our area by giving them and their family a warm meal to eat over the holiday season.
If you cannot make it out the day of make a donation online right now.
