KCMQ’s One For One Holiday Food Drive is Dec. 14

Our holiday tradition is back, and more important than ever!

The KCMQ/Commerce Bank One-For-One Holiday Food Drive to benefit The Food Bank of Central and Northeast Missouri was another incredible day!

Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $65,000 and over 5,000 pounds of food!

This will go so incredibly far to help our neighbors in need this holiday season. Just remember that the need will continue after the holidays so give back where you can!

If you didn’t get a chance to Donate earlier, you can do so online right now:


BIG THANKS to some of our sponsors, like Commerce Bank, Inside Columbia Magazine, Networks of Mid-Missouri, and Columbia Professional Firefighters for helping out this year!

The Food Bank serves around 100,000 people a month and covers a 32 county service area. It distributed over 32 million pounds of food in 2020, equaling a $50 million wholesale value. The need is greater than ever and continues to grow.

The easiest and most impactful way you can give is with an online monetary donation. Not only is it contactless, but with the Food Bank’s partnerships, they can turn a $1 donation into 4 meals, $25 into 100 Meals!! A $270 donation can provide Buddy Packs to one student for a full school year.
