I have been hearing about the Food for Fines program on KSMU since the beginning of February and my friend Teresa asked me to write for SpringfieldFoodie.net, and voila! you have my first guest post for The Springfield Foodie*! Click on over to The Springfield Foodie to read about how the Springfield-Greene County Library District is pairing up with Ozarks Food Harvest to bring library patrons a great trade-off which benefits needy families all over Springfield and southwest Missouri.
Community service has always been an important part of my life and now that I am an adult (at least by age!), I am trying to take a more focused approach because I need to successfully balance my time between family, work, and “extra” (including blogging and community service). Maybe you’re like me and don’t have any library fines but would still like to support Ozarks Food Harvest? Contact them to tell them you can donate some time to help shelve all the food that Food for Fines brings in. Then contact me (@xgravity23 or lam [at] lindenamueller.com) and we can go do it together!
* The next guest post should be a really fun one, but I’m waiting on some contacts to come through so I can swing the tour I want to take of one of the yummiest places in southwest Missouri.
