 FOOD PANTRY NOW OPEN

 The Department has recently begun hosting the Mid-Mo Military Family Pantry at our Department Headquarters, 3401 Knipp Drive, Jefferson City, MO.  The Pantry is open on Thursdays from 4:00 to 6:00 pm.  However, if a veteran or his family is in immediate need, they can call the Department office at 573-636-8761 for assistance.  Recently a freezer was donated and we will be accepting cold food donations.  Below is a link to a recent article published by the News Tribune.

 Legislative/VOD - 2021

Regrettably, as a result of restrictions directly associated with access to the Dirksen Building and those same restrictions also applying to the Commander-in-Chief’s testimony, we are cancelling the February/March 2021 Legislative Conference and are exploring other opportunities for the execution of the Voice of Democracy Parade of Winners.
