Storms tore through the Ozarks region of Missouri this week.  In Branson, Missouri a tornado struck causing heavy damage. The Ozarks Food Harvest, a member of the Feeding America network, is on standby to provide supplies to storm victims.

The Food Harvest is the leading agency in the area helping feed needy families, the homeless, or those struck by disaster.

Denise Gibson, communications director of the Foodbank says, “we will work through our network of agency partners that reside in each community affected and provide whatever additional assistance they need. We have been in contact with all of them to make sure that they are up and running and to determine how we can be of immediate help.”
