Missouri’s 4-H clubs have exceeded their goal of raising funds in their annual food drive.
After setting a goal to raise enough for 250-thousand meals
for hungry families, the 4-Hrs raised enough for nearly 300-thousand meals.
Scott Baker, with Feeding Missouri, praised the students for
their efforts – saying some food banks have seen demand increase by as much as
100% during the COVID-19 response.
Marshall Stewart, University of Missouri vice chancellor for
extension praised the students saying “even in the midst of all the challenges
around COVID-19” they stepped up.
The 4-H Feeding Missouri Food drive was in partnership with
Missouri Farmers Care Drive to Feed Kids (January through April).
