Funds will help area food pantries restock shelves

Tuesday, August 3, 2010

JEFFERSON CITY -- Southeast Missouri residents will be among those who benefit from almost $25 million in assistance to Missouri food banks, food pantries, and programs that provide support to low-income children and seniors.

"Children, families and seniors will benefit from this timely funding as Missourians continue to recover from the economic downturn," Gov. Jay Nixon said. "Many Missouri food banks and food pantries saw their shelves stripped bare as more working families struggled and donations dwindled. This will help children and working families that still need assistance."
