|Retail Store Donation Program
"Working together for Hunger Relief."
These are the words you will find on a Southeast Missouri Food Bank truck and they couldn't be more true to describe the partnership between area stores and Southeast Missouri Food Bank.
On a regular basis you will find Southeast Missouri Food Bank trucks on their way to Target, Kroger, Sam's Club and local Walmart stores to pick up items that fall below first quality retail standards but provide food banks with a reliable source of food and household products for those living in poverty.
In 2013 over 1.4 million pounds of products were donated and distributed through hunger relief agency channels and the Food Bank's mobile food pantry program.
This donated food is the distributed through the Truck to the Table Mobile Food Pantry program and Hunger Relief Network Member Agencies.
The Retail Store Donation program is an important component to providing hunger relief. So the next time you see the Food Bank truck at your local store know that we are working together to provide hunger relief.
Member Agencies wanting to participate in this program please contact Mike Smith, Distribution & Logistics Manager at 573.471.1818, 855.703.FOOD(3663) or firstname.lastname@example.org.
