Texas County Food Pantry

The Texas County Food Pantry hopes to raise $5,000 to receive a dollar-for-dollar match grant from Ozarks Food Harvest, the regional food bank for southwest Missouri.

The funds come from a grant the food bank, which serves the Texas County Food Pantry, received from the Walmart Foundation State Giving Program.

This is the seventh annual time the Walmart foundation and Ozarks Food Harvest have offered it to its agencies as a matching grant opportunity. The funds received by the local food pantry will be used to meet food needs in the county.

The county food pantry has until Nov. 1 to raise the money that will be matched. Persons can mail donations to: 102-A Highway 17, Houston, Mo. 65483. Donations also can be dropped off from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. on weekdays. Funds should be designed as going to the “challenge grant.”
