2023 One For One Holiday Food Drive Was A Success!

UPDATE: We were able to raise $52,842 AND COUNTING for the Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri! That’s 211,368 meals that will go directly to the food insecure in our community.

Thank you so much to all who donated! If you weren’t able to stop by the Columbia Mall but still would like to donate, our online donations will be live the rest of the week.

ORIGINAL: Our holiday tradition is back, and more important than ever!

The Clear 99/Commerce Bank One-For-One Holiday Food Drive to benefit The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri is coming up on Wednesday, December 13th!

Join us in supporting our community, giving back to those who need it the most this holiday. The Food Bank serves over 100,000 people a month and covers a 32-county service area. They partner with more than 145 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and other agencies to ensure food gets into the hands of those who need it most. This includes working with nearly 200 schools.

The need is greater than ever and continues to grow.

From 6a-6p, we’ll be teaming with Columbia Professional Firefighters and KMIZ ABC 17/FOX 22 collecting donations at the Columbia Mall just off Stadium (by Wendy’s).  There will also be donation locations INSIDE the Mall, as well as in front of Buchheits’ off Missouri Blvd in Jefferson City.

The easiest and most impactful way you can give is with an online monetary donation. Not only is it contactless, but with the Food Bank’s partnerships, they can turn a $1 donation into 4 meals, $25 into 100 Meals!! A $270 donation can provide Buddy Packs to one student for a full school year.
