(West Plains) – The next prequalification for the Ozarks Food Harvest Mobile Food Pantry will be from 4-5:45 PM Wednesday, March 7, at the West Plains Public Library Community Room. March’s mobile food pantry is being sponsored by Noon Rotary and Sunrise Rotary Clubs of West Plains.
Those eligible to apply for this assistance include area families with children ages birth through 18 who live within Howell County. This includes the communities of West Plains, Willow Springs and Mountain View. Previously, the criteria only included families who lived within the boundaries of the West Plains R-7 School District or surrounding rural school districts.
Students enrolled at Missouri State University-West Plains and the South Central Career Center also are eligible, provided they meet income guidelines. Missouri State students must present their student identification cards in person, as well as a current class schedule and can’t send them with a family member.
Those who apply should bring a photo ID, proof of income, proof of Howell County residency, names and ages of children, and a telephone number to the event. Proof of Howell County residency does not apply to Missouri State-West Plains or South Central Career Center students.
