  Ozarks Food Harvest has received a grant to help feed the hungry in Howell County.  The $14,000 from the Caterpillar Foundation will help provide food for those who need it in the county, which is home to a Caterpillar facility, and will help fund the Weekend Backpack Program at Richards Elementary in West Plains.

According to Ozarks Food Harvest, 17 percent of Howell County residents deal with hunger.

Ozarks Food Harvest is one of 35 food banks nationwide to receive the grant.
