When a person is down in the world,
an ounce of help is better than
a pound of preaching

Awards:

   The Ivy Bend Community Food Pantry received an award from the Missouri Department of Economic Development's Neighborhood Assistance Program that funded an expansion at the facility in southern Morgan County.


    The tax credit grant allowed more local money to stay local rather than go to the state and federal governments for wider distribution.


    The pantry received its full proposed amount of $308,210 in the grant. That is the amount of donations the pantry received through the program, with $215,747 in tax credits available.


    Ivy Bend's award was one of five food pantry programs in the state that received assistance in a recent award announcement from the DOD.


    We have received our full $308,210.00 in NAP Grant Donations and the new Pantry became fully operational in July of 2015.


    The new pantry building, provides an opportunity to store and give a larger quantity and variety of food to its residents and surrounding communities of Southwestern Morgan County in Missouri. The facility includes a FREE senior citizen hot lunch program, AA, NA, AL-ANON services,  and Katy Trail health services.  GED and tutoring referral service is also available for children in the Ivy Bend community who are struggling academically. 



     A BIG THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT DONATED.
