Ozarks Food Harvest

Ozarks Food Harvest

Ozarks Food Harvest is a non-profit organization that strives to help children, families, and the senior citizens in our community. They serve in 28 counties and with 270 other hunger-relief organizations. They serve thousands of citizens and over 16.4 million meals annually. They also have many programs that they run. For instance, their Backpack program sends kids home with a bag of food who don’t usually have food over the weekend. SPS participates in the Ozarks Food Harvest Food Fight every year. This is a friendly competition to see what school can raise the most pounds of food. Last year, SPS collected 31,746 pounds of food for OFH. This year’s fight was the 7th fight OFH has hosted. Cherokee participated in this year’s SPS Food Fight.
