Midwest Food Bank (MFB), a faith-based, non-denominational nonprofit 501 (c) (3) organization, was started in 2003 when the Kieser family began providing food out of a barn on their family farm.  MFB began by serving about 10 food pantries in McLean County, Illinois. Today we serve over 740 organizations across the Midwest & South with 5 warehouse locations. The food given out each month now reachers over 500,000 people. Learn More




Midwest Food Bank is led by a board of directors as well as an advisory board for each location. In addition to the directors, each division is staffed by paid staff as appropriate, and many volunteers. Learn More


Food & Disaster Relief


Midwest Food Bank (MFB) is not a direct food pantry that serves individuals. Instead, MFB is a food bank, serving as a distribution center to smaller food banks and food pantries. MFB provides food & disaster relief supplies regionally, nationally, and internationally. In this way, we aim to positively impact as many families as possible. Learn More
