Missouri FFA Food Insecurity Service Day
More than 700 Missouri FFA members will gather at the State Fair to pack more than 100,000 child-friendly meals to benefit Meals of Hope.

In 2018, farmers, ranchers, agribusinesses, FFA members and legislators supplied more than 100,000 meals, donated 18,932 pounds of canned food and packed 2,000 backpack meals for Missouri children facing hunger. In addition, the Drive raised more than $160,000 for Missouri’s six regional food banks to purchase child-friendly meals. The Drive’s impact has reached each Missouri county. Last year’s partners, including Missouri Farmers Care, Brownfield Ag News, Bayer, Missouri Department of Agriculture, Missouri Farmers Care and Missouri FFA Association, are building on these efforts to provide more meals, raise funds, and continue shining a light on modern agriculture during the 2019 year.

Missouri Farmers Care is a joint effort by Missouri’s farming and agriculture community to stand together for the men and women who provide the food and jobs on which our communities depend. The Drive to Feed Kids is being managed by the Missouri Farmers Care Foundation, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt public charity.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 17
