What we do:
We provide food at no charge to approx 104,000 people monthly in 32 counties. We provide Buddy Packs to 7,500 children WEEKLY who rely on subsidized school meals. We provide nutrition to seniors on fixed incomes and, in Boone County, VIP Packs to Veterans.
Why we’re great:
We work with Feeding America to maximize efficiency. For every $1 donated, we can purchase $21 worth of groceries. Nearly 43,000 people volunteered with us in 2015. We bring together resources to share food and bring hope to those in need.
Why does your organization deserve community financial support?
We are a bridge between the community and the working poor, Veterans, families, children and seniors. We often help people overcome temporary crisis situations. At Central Pantry in CoMo, we serve about 10,000 people each month.
List of volunteer and in-kind needs
We always need volunteers to help repackage food. We also accept food donations.
