The Missouri State Fair will offer $2 gate admission Tuesday, Aug. 13 for fairgoers who bring a minimum donation of two canned goods to benefit Feeding Missouri through the annual Missouri Farmers Care Food Drive.
In addition to $2 admission, be on the lookout for $2 carnival rides, for most rides, all day, and $2 specials at select concessions and vendors all day.
Missouri FFA will host its third annual Food Insecurity Service Day with more than 750 FFA members. Their goal is to reduce childhood food insecurity in Missouri and pack more than 100,000 child-friendly meals that will be distributed to six food banks across the state.
Stop by the Agriculture Building to learn more about food insecurity at the canned food display, constructed of 3,000 cans of food. All cans used in the display will be added to the Food Drive collection and head to food banks following the Fair.
