Hunger doesn’t take a break and neither does the Ozarks Food Harvest!

The Ozarks Food Harvest supplies food to thousands of homes who are experiencing food insecurities in Southwest Missouri.

Here are some ways you can help our neighbors.

• Ozarks Food Harvest month at Community Blood Center of the Ozarks,  through June 30. Blood donors can help their donation go further by dedicating their Life-Points to Ozarks Food Harvest during the month of June. CBCO will convert donated points to cash and make a donation to Ozarks Food Harvest.
