Your Money Makes a Big Impact 

When you donate to Southeast Missouri Food Bank your donation has a big impact—every dollar you donate provides 4 meals to struggling Southeast Missouri families! As a leader in hunger relief we serve over 63,000 individuals every month and distribute more than 9 million pounds of food.

We are proud to be recognized for excellence in the use of donated resources.  Southeast Missouri Food Bank currently uses less than 5 percent of these resources for administration and fundraising, with the bulk being spent in program areas directly related to food acquisition, food distribution and nutrition education.
