Extra food in your pantry?
Food Harvest and its 340+ member agencies appreciate your generosity.
Whether it’s a few cans from your cupboards or a bag of groceries
you picked up at the supermarket, The Food Bank will quickly get
your donation to those who need it most.
Due to the unprecedented need for The Food Bank’s services, OFH is unable to pick up food drives at this time. Saving Ozarks Food Harvest the delivery or pick up of your food drive is equivalent to making an additional $50.00 donation to Ozarks Food Harvest.
All items to
be donated must be in their original, unopened packages near the
expiration date on the package. OFH does accept refrigerated or
frozen goods as well as toiletry items, particularly diapers and
Food Harvest prefers monetary donations for The Weekend Backpack Program™ because The Food Bank can purchase the specific
items at a bulk, discounted rate. In the past, OFH asked for easy-open,
single serving items, but now purchases those items and requests
for donations of toothbrushes and small toothpastes.
Holding a food
drive is a fun and easy group activity and helps give people a sense
of social responsibility. Food drives also provide critically needed
nonperishable food for food pantries throughout the Ozarks.
