Sisters Mission Outreach in Springfield has asked Midwest Food Bank to help with disaster relief efforts in Haiti. On January 15 first aid supplies, vitamins, water, and food supplies were transported to Coconut Creek, Florida.  The items were then shipped to Haiti on a U.S. Naval  vessel.  That week a second truckload from Midwest Food Bank transported additional supplies and food as designated by relief personnel, and provisions were supplied to twelve doctors from the Peoria area who went to Haiti.
