At Second Harvest Community Food Bank, our mission is to build hunger-free communities across the 19 counties we serve in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. Through a variety of direct service programs and efforts of over 100 Partner Agencies, we distributed 5.7 million pounds of food last year.
Nearly 51,000 children, families and seniors suffer from food insecurity in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas. Of these people, 1 in 5 are children. Being food insecure means a person doesn’t know where their next meal will come from. Many of these individuals have limited access to food which adds to their meal gap. A meal gap is the difference between a person’s food resources and what they actually need to sustain a healthy, fulfilling life.

Second Harvest is the First Regional Nonprofit Organization to Belong to the Better Business Bureau:
Second Harvest Community Food Bank, a non-profit food distribution center serving nineteen counties in Northwest Missouri and Northeast Kansas, announces that it has met the Better Business Bureau’s (BBB) Wise Giving Alliance’s Standards for Charity Accountability and is now an official BBB Accredited Charity.
Second Harvest participated in the voluntary program because it believes in the importance of accountability and transparency for a non-profit organization. By being evaluated by BBB’s Charity Review Program, Second Harvest allowed an outside, third-party to take an objective look at the organization. The Standards for Charity Accountability examine a charity’s governance and oversight by its board of directors, how the organization measures its effectiveness in achieving its mission, its finances, and its fundraising and informational materials.
