The Commerce Bank One for One food drive sponsored by Zimmer Radio Group is underway at this hour at both Columbia Mall and Jefferson City’s Orscheln.
939 the Eagle’s Andy Humphrey will have live reports on “Wake Up Columbia” this morning, from Columbia Mall.
The One for One food drive raises money and collects food to help our neighbors in need, across 32 counties.
The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri says canned meat and canned fruits and vegetables are especially needed. A $25 donation can provide at least 100 meals.
Proceeds will go to the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri, which uses all of the money for food. Food Bank president Lindsey Young Lopez tells 939 the Eagle that it’s been a challenging time for her staff members and volunteers.
The food bank serves about 100,000 each month.
