Semi-Annual Food Bank Donation Spreads 80,000 Cans Among Five Area Outlets

(Dec. 12, 2013) -- Downstream Casino Resort is making its semi-annual food donation this week to five food banks in the region. Deliveries are scheduled for Friday, and includes 80,000 cans of corn, squash, carrots, sweet peas, red beans and green beans, to fight hunger in our region. The Quapaw Tribe and Downstream do this twice a year because they don't like the thought of anyone going hungry.

The five food banks receiving the donations are:

  • Ottawa County Nutrition Coalition, in Miami, Okla.
  • Southeast Kansas Food Shop & Pantry, in Baxter Springs, Kan.
  • Crosslines Ministries, in Joplin, Mo.
  • Northwest Arkansas Food Bank, in Bethel Heights, Ark.

And the newly formed Quapaw Tribe Food Bank, located at the Downstream Warehouse, corner of Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri.

We are grateful.
