The Southeast Missouri Food Bank Receives $5,000 Grant to Fight Hunger in Chaffee

BNSF Railway Foundation awarded a $5,000 grant to Southeast Missouri Food (SEMO) Bank to fund food distributions in Chaffee. The grant will be utilized to help food needs with quarterly mobile food pantries. Each mobile food pantry provides at least 200 families with around thirty pounds of food. In addition the grant will also sponsor six Chaffee students in the Backpacks for Friday program for the 2021-2022 school year. Children in the program take home a pack of food with no-prep meals for the weekend.
