As families struggle under the weight of devastating job losses, many are faced with food insecurity. As a result, our local food pantries are reporting a large increase in the number of households served, many seeking assistance for the first time.
In response to the economic impact of COVID 19, our family of TV stations has teamed up with Ozarks Food Harvest, Kansas Food Bank and the Community Food Bank of Eastern Oklahoma to help meet the needs of those depending on 4-State area food pantries.
You can help to Feed the 4-States. When you give to a Food Bank, each dollar donated is stretched to provide up to four healthy meals. To make a donation, click on one of the links above. Each Food Bank will direct donations to help families right here at home.
The funds raised by each Food Bank will support the work of helping agencies in Southeast Kansas, Southwest Missouri or Northeast Oklahoma. Our neighbors, families and friends.
We’re also joined by Ron’s Supermarket in Pittsburg and Peerless Products in Ft. Scott. They are accepting non-perishable food donations on-location in one of our collection barrels. The food will be distributed by The Wesley House in Pittsburg and The Beacon in Ft. Scott.
When there’s a need, the 4-State area always comes together. We can do it again. 4-States together.
