A guide to emergency food resources in the west central Missouri region is now available at the West Central Missouri Community Action Agency Covid-19 Response web page: www.wcmcaa.org/covid-19/

As of Thursday, March 26, West Central’s Food Access Guide included 56 entries about food pantry, school, grocery and other emergency food resource arrangements across nine counties: Bates, Benton, Cass, Cedar, Henry, Hickory, Morgan, St. Clair, and Vernon.

The Food Access Guide is a work in progress. West Central invites the public and community partners to update and add information about food and other emergency resources using its online submission form (see link at top of the guide located here www.wcmcaa.org/covid-19/).

West Central is open and serving all clients by phone and email while doors are closed to the public to reduce coronavirus exposure. Phone: 660-476-2185. Email: info@wcmcaa.org.

“West Central is dedicated to serving our clients and supporting our partners during this time,” said CEO Chris Thompson. “We will do our best to amplify the courageous and creative efforts of citizens and community organizations across this region.”

The Food Access Guide is one way in which West Central staff are working to identify and communicate available resources during the Covid-19 pandemic. The agency’s Food Response Team is connecting with community organizations to learn what they are doing and what they need. This team is also working with area organizations to coordinate sales and donations from local farms with available supply. 

West Central shares news daily at its Facebook page @WestCentralCares about the latest in social service program changes and other resources, such as Covid-19 emergency grant opportunities.
