SPRINGFIELD, Mo. – The Ozark Empire Fair kicked off yesterday and, along with it, the Summer’s Biggest Food Drive in a benefit to Crosslines.

Now through Saturday, Aug. 2, fair patrons will receive $1 off general fair admission with the donation of two nonperishable food items.

Donations can be brought to any entrance gate of the fair.

According to Crosslines, last year the Ozark Empire Fair food drive collected more than 1,470 pounds of food for local families.

This year, the goal is to collect more than 100,000 pounds of food.

All food collected will immediately be used to feed families in need in Greene County.
