Michelle Ducre, Community Foundation of the Ozarks Southwest Region director of development, presented the Cassville Community Foundation (CCF) and Cassville Community Food Pantry with a $6,105.91 grant on Nov. 22. CCF raised a portion of the funds locally in order to make the pantry eligible for the grant through the Ozarks Million Dollar Hunger Challenge II, which is made possible by a donation to Community Foundation of the Ozarks by the Walmart State Giving Foundation. The Cassville Community Food Pantry is located in the Cassville United Methodist Church.
