JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — With your support the 2022 Drive to Feed Kids was a success! The partnership wrapped up this year’s Drive on Aug. 20 at the Missouri State Fair with a big announcement – over 2.4 million meals donated this year!
The impact of the Drive to Feed Kids has been demonstrated in lives changed and acts of service taking place across to state to address food insecurity. From 4-H Feeding Misouri, Missouri Farm Bureau Young Farmers and Ranchers meal packing, Hogs for Hunger, Missouri FFA Day of Service, MFC $2 Tuesday donations at the Missouri State Fair, elected officials packing meals, to 4-H and FFA mini-grant activities statwide, events throughout the year have brought people and resources together around a common mission. The tangible impact of our efforts can be felt making a difference in lives across Missouri.
