KXCV-KRNW food drive raises more than 400 pounds for food bank
Food insecurity affects many of our neighbors. That’s why KXCV-KRNW, the NPR radio affiliate broadcasting from the Northwest Missouri State University campus, and 13 regional grocers organized a food drive for the Second Harvest Community Food Bank in St. Joseph and its affiliates.
Operating with the theme “Your Heart is Showing,” organizers of the food drive set a goal to collect at least 250 pounds of food during four weeks in February and March. Residents exceeded the goal and donated 417 pounds of food.
The donated food was provided to the Ministry Center in Maryville, the Lord’s Warehouse in Albany and Living Hope in Maysville.
Participating grocers included Pamida, HyVee and Walmart stores in Maryville, Albany, Bethany, Gallatin and Tarkio. Other stores that served as collection sites included Dungy’s Affiliated Super in Maysville, George’s Total in Mound City, Country Mart and Green Hills in Savannah and the Stanberry Thriftway.
