USDA to Distribute Food Boxes
The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) approved the Missouri Department of Social Services’ request to use USDA foods to operate Disaster Household Distribution in response to COVID-19. Through May 7, 2020, Missourians in need can get a food package from mobile and drive-by locations through six Missouri food banks at over 200 distribution sites. Disaster Household Distribution expects to serve over 90,000 Missourians, including elderly households, households with health conditions, and the recently unemployed. Each food package weighs approximately 25 pounds and contains vegetables, fruits, pasta/rice/starch, protein, and dairy products. Missourians in our area are urged to contact one of the numbers below to inquire about locations, dates, and availability.
Harvesters Community Food Network (816) 929-3000
Second Harvest Community Food Bank (816) 364-3663
