Your donation makes a big impact.

When you donate to Southeast Missouri Food Bank your donation has a big impact —every dollar you donate can help provide 4 meals to southeast Missouri families facing hunger. As the primary hunger-relief organization in the region, we serve more than 63,000 individuals every month and distribute nearly a million pounds of food per month.

The food bank is a registered 501c, and Charity Navigator has awarded us its highest possible rating for our adherence to ethical practices. More than 96 percent of donations we receive are put back into programs, with less than 4 percent used for administration and operations.
