Program Description


The Covid crisis has exacerbated the reality of food insecurity for families and individuals. Throughout the country, food banks report more and more families depending on their services for the first time, and television news shows us the long lines of cars waiting to receive boxes of food necessities in town both large and small. Jami Wade, regional coordinator for The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri, will describe national and local needs, how food is sourced, what people receive from The Food Bank, the role of Feeding America, and the types of volunteer help The Food Bank needs. She also will discuss the local partner agencies, Buddy Packs, Veterans Packs, and Senior Boxes. The Food Bank serves 32 counties, including Cole.  A link to join will be provided prior to the start of the program.
