“By the Numbers”
Covid-19 Food Relief
Our COVID-19 hunger relief impact was huge! We distributed over 19,000 pounds (3,900 boxes!) of Patchwork pork to families across the state and coordinated an additional 2,500 hot meals to kids and families in mid-Missouri.
Letters to the Editor
Our members and supporters wrote over 60 LTEs and Op-Eds, and our work generated 253 media stories on the issues of local control, the environment, healthcare, and family farms vs. factory farms, reaching hundreds of thousands of people.
In-person and Online Meetings
In early 2020, almost 600 people attended our in-person events from documentary screenings to lobby days and public meetings, and we reached 14,679 people through our online webinars, meetings, and live-streamed events.
We communicated directly with 288,500 voters through mailings, phone calls, text messages, and social media campaigns.
Social Media Community
