COVID-19 update

 
The suspension of businesses and services due to the COVID-19 virus has had a major impact on individuals and families. With the information we have and understanding our mission to serve those in need, Midwest Food Bank is maintaining operations of procuring and distributing food to partner agencies. Semi-loads of family food boxes have been shipped out at the request of our partner, The Salvation Army. More loads have been requested and are in process. 
 
As is always our practice:  Human safety and food safety are our top priorities. Volunteer operations have been modified to comply with CDC recommendations. We will continue to keep you informed of MFB efforts in this crisis. For information about a specific location, please go to that division's Facebook page. 

Our Impact

Midwest Food Bank currently distributes over $23 million worth of food to over 2,000 non-profits each month. We stand ready for disaster relief efforts and can get food-filled relief boxes to those in need, within 24 hours. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the valuable work of our volunteers, and most importantly, the blessings of God, Midwest Food Bank now shares the blessings worldwide. Nearly $280 million worth of food was distributed in 2019.

Food for not-for-profits

40,600,000 people live in poverty in the United States alone. Each month, we stock the shelves of over 1,700 food pantries to continue our battle against hunger.

Call to Action

We desperately want to live in a world where our services are no longer needed – where the concept of hunger is foreign and a thing of the past. Until that day comes, we’ll stay in the fight, and we’d like you by our side. Our volunteers, agency partners, Share Partners, and Corporate Sponsorships enable us to grow into new locations and continue to fight hunger around the world. We need your support to continue impacting those affected by hunger. Take time to learn how we earned the highest rating through Charity Navigator, America’s premier independent charity evaluator, and consider how you can help through donation or volunteerism. Thank you for your consideration!
