New Missouri hunger study highlights challenges faced by hunger-relief agencies and the people they serve
Many Missourians are facing record-high food, energy, and gas prices and for food pantry guests this means difficult choices have to be made to make ends meet. As the FAHH 2021 study points out 46% of pantry visitors had to choose between food and utilities, 38% had to decide between buying food or paying for medicine/medical care, 34% had to choose either paying for housing or food.
Feeding Missouri presented its first ever Hunger Hero award during the 2021 Governor’s Conference on Agriculture. Dr. Alan Wessler received this award for his dedication and service to feeding children and engaging partners in the fight against hunger in Missouri.
