It’s #GivingTuesday and we’re #GivingThanks



On one of the biggest days of the year for charities across the country, we want to take this opportunity to share how grateful we are for the individuals, organizations and foundations who support our work. Any success we’ve had is because you all have shared our vision and made a contribution.

Here are just a few things we accomplished this year with your help:
  • 200 kids met with elected officials to share their ideas for making their communities healthier.
  • More than 100 advocates shared personal stories about why Farm Bill programs matter to them and their communities. Many of those stories were passed on to federal elected officials.
  • Missouri seniors and farmers will once again enjoy the benefits of the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program, which begins in 2019.
  • We launched Healthy Kids Bright Futures to connect early care and education centers with community resources and to teach families how to be advocates for themselves and their children.
