Our holiday tradition is back, and more important than ever!
Join us in supporting our community, giving back to those who need it the most this holiday. The Food Bank serves around 100,000 people a month and covers a 32 county service area. It distributed over 32 million pounds of food in 2020, equaling a $50 million wholesale value. The need is greater than ever and continues to grow.
From 6a-6p, we’ll be teaming with Inside Columbia Magazine and Columbia Professional Firefighters collecting donations at the Columbia Mall just off Stadium (by Wendy’s). There will also be donation locations INSIDE the Mall (between JCP and the Food Court), as well as in front of Buchheits (the former Orschlen Farm & Home) off Missouri Blvd in Jefferson City.
The easiest and most impactful way you can give is with an online monetary donation. Not only is it contactless, but with the Food Bank’s partnerships, they can turn a $1 donation into 4 meals, $25 into 100 Meals!! A $270 donation can provide Buddy Packs to one student for a full school year.
Donate online right now by clicking the link below and The Crossing will MATCH your donation!
You can also text “FOOD” to 573-874-9390 for a quick donation link thanks to Equipment Share who will match your donation!
Or donate on Dec. 14th with the Missouri Pork Association Phone Bank: 573-447-6600
