Members of Sophia Circle will be in the Connector on Sunday morning, Aug. 16 to collect monetary donations for our final Festival of Sharing Kit of 2015. They will collect money to purchase beans and rice for food pantries across Missouri. Money received will be given to the Festival of Sharing Office to purchase bulk rice and beans which are delivered to Sedalia and to ShareFest sites around the state. Rice is purchased from Missouri farmers. Beans come from the nearest processing warehouse. Last year, 20,000 lbs.
