Food & Disaster Relief
Midwest Food Bank serves over 500 nonprofit organizations. Our organizational structure enables many nonprofit organizations and volunteers to take part in our monthly distributions and daily activities.
Each month, one week is dedicated to local distribution. During the week, organizations pick up product to distribute to people in their community. Hundreds of volunteers participate to make it possible. Contact us For more information.
Midwest Food Bank was able to distribute disaster relief to over 26 disaster sites in 2008!
With hurricane disasters in the south and flooding in the midwest, Midwest Food Bank has continued to help as much as possible. We have delivered loads to Arkansas (Little Rock, Pine Bluff, Stuttgart), Iowa (Cedar Rapids, Oakville), Texas (Texas City), Louisiana (Baton Rouge, Gretna, Lake Charles) and Florida (Melbourne).
