Second Harvest Officially Launches Food Justice Movement

Second Harvest Community Food Bank traveled to Rock Port, MO on Saturday, March 9 to officially kickoff the Food Justice Movement or Second Harvest's Annual Fund Campaign.

Rock Port GirlsSecond Harvest has set a goal of raising $400,000 during the Food Justice Movement. The funds collected through the Movement will help expand access to our neighbors through:

By giving to the Food Justice Movement, in any amount, you will become part of theJason Riley solution to hunger by expanding access to nutritious food to families in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. Because of Second Harvest’s incredible buying power, we can turn $1 into 3 nutritious meals and of all resources donated to Second Harvest, 96 percent goes directly to food acquisition, distribution and programs. Plus, because of Second Harvest’s four star rating from Charity Navigator, America’s largest independent charity evaluator, donors can rest assured knowing that Second Harvest practices sound fiscal management practices and accountability.

Donors who contribute $500 or more to the Food Justice Movement may qualify for a 50 percent tax credit from the Neighbor Assistance Program (NAP). If you have business income from a farm operation, rental property, an S-Corporation or royalties, you may qualify.

As part of the Movement, Atchison and Holt County schools competed in a peanut butter drive. Between the schools in Mound City, Tarkio, Rock Port and Fairfax over 2,200 pounds of peanut butter was collected.
