4-H Clubs Awarded Grants For Projects Addressing Hunger

The 4-H Feeding Missouri challenge is underway for this year, and 24 clubs around the state are receiving a boost in their efforts to combat food insecurity in their communities.  Missouri Farmers Care Foundation released Friday morning the list of 4-H clubs and councils receiving Drive To Feed Kids grants of $250.  The funds will go toward the clubs’ efforts to raise resources and awareness addressing needs faced by food-insecure families in their communities.  Clubs receiving the grants will raise matching funds until April 30th as part of a statewide campaign to generate food donations.

The 4-H Feeding Missouri competition has raised more than 1.7 million meals since launching five years ago.  Last year saw 4-H clubs around the state contribute to provide over 700,000 meals.
