About the Drive
In an effort to combat childhood food insecurity in the state, Missouri Farmers Care has launched a summer of service with Drive to Feed Kids, a program that leverages existing food bank and distribution networks to deliver kid-friendly meals to youth. Food is delivered through backpack programs and in-school food pantries to help children in food-insecure households.
The Missouri Farmers Care effort will culminate with several events at the Missouri State Fair. A film premiere of “Where the Fast Lane Ends” and a concert will be held on Thursday, Aug. 10. The first Missouri FFA Food Insecurity Service Day will take place Tuesday, Aug. 15 when Missouri FFA members will pack 50,000 child-friendly meals.
