Lou Ann's Story "Opened My Eyes"

"My husband and I both worked really hard to get to how we are now, financially secure. But for those few years, if we hadn’t had the food stamps, family help, and the food pantry, I don’t know what would have happened. We would have been very hungry."

John's Story "He Dusts Me Off"

John's Story "He Dusts Me Off"

"Ozarks Food Harvest contacted us with the possibility of doing a pantry. The Kitchen had closed and the help was really needed in this area.

We prayed about it and felt that is what God wanted us to do. The first month we served 50 people through the pantry. Now we serve 450 a month. We’re a small church, about 75 people attend every week. But it’s a place that really touches a lot of people and that is because of the heart of the people we help. Last year we served over 7,000 meals and 9,932 people came to the pantry."

Cortez's Story "The Hunger Games"

"I began volunteering at Crimson House where Pastor John Pace worked with me to help me with my quick and bad anger. In exchange, I offered to cook for the church, something I have loved my whole life...Now I am in charge of Crimson House's kitchen, and help other volunteers find sobriety and a life of service to God."
