From May 4, 2020 until September 23, 2020 more than 269 tons of produce and meat boxes were distributed in our region. Due to the assistance of the Department of Public Safety 33,000 plus mask were distributed to all six Bootheel counties as well as Butler and Cape Counties in southeast Missouri. It was a team effort as all involved worked together to combat food insecurities in our region and the affects of Covid-19.
