Since 2009, Art Feeds has impacted 17,000 children.

Currently, Art Feeds programs exist in 13 Joplin schools and 3 Joplin children’s organizations serving 3,200 children weekly. In 2013 alone, Art Feeds has impacted over 7,000 children in Joplin and beyond. In Art Feeds short existence, the programs have impacted locations worldwide. These communities include St. Louis, MO, Moore, OK, Jackson NJ, Ghana, West Africa, Estes Park, CO and more.
