Coming to a grocery store near you

In an effort to make a positive difference in the lives of our Ozarks neighbors, the employees at White River Valley Electric Cooperative will rally once again for the third annual Power to turn Hunger into Hope campaign.

Last year, between cash and food donations, WRVEC was able to account for over $71,000 worth of food for local food pantries. They will again be at your local grocery stores collecting cash or food donations.  With the help of  local pantry partnerships, every dollar donated can purchase ten dollars worth of food. This contribution makes a big difference for our neighbors in need.

One out of every four children in the Ozarks goes to bed hungry. Missouri ranks fifth in the nation for children not knowing when, where, or even if they will get their next meal. Many of our senior citizens face the terrible decision of choosing between buying prescriptions or buying groceries.

Food insecurity negatively impacts cognitive development, school performance and has serious health consequences. The food drive will continue to alleviate some of the suffering in our service area and have a positive impact on the physical and emotional health of families in our five-county service area. Our communities can improve if those who live in them are healthier. Please come out and help your neighbors in need. Together,  acontinue to make a difference in the lives of many.  Let’s make this the best year yet!
