Ozarks Food Harvest has announced a partnership with SGC Foodservice for fresh food boxes from the USDA.
The USDA is providing fresh food boxes through the Farmers to Families Food Box Program. The goal of the program is to keep food industry workers employed while providing meals to people who need food. The boxes are pre-packaged and contain fresh produce, dairy, and pre-cooked meats.
The boxes are delivered at no cost to non-profit locations.
“SGC Foodservice has a long heritage of philanthropic support for Ozarks Food Harvest and food banks across the communities they serve,” Bart Brown, president/CEO of Ozarks Food Harvest, said in a statement. “We are thrilled to partner with them to distribute nutritious, fresh food to families across the state.”
SGC Foodservice won a bid with the USDA to provide food to Ozarks Food Harvest and five other Missouri food banks.
Ozarks Food Harvest is asking the public to continue donations as they have seen a significant rise in use of their services. To donate, visit the Ozarks Food Harvest website.
