Midwest Food Bank has an opportunity to repurpose warehouse and office space. We plan to:
Build a large capacity freezer and cooler - to increase the amount of nutritious food donations we are able to accept, store, and distribute.
Increasing the amount of nutritious food is vital. We often have to refuse semi-loads of fresh and frozen food donations due to lack of cold storage capacity.
Create a community gathering space - to share our facility and to provide our volunteers and community a place to meet, gather and serve together.
To thank the over 3,500 volunteers serving annually, we plan to create a community gathering space for businesses, civic and church groups and families to use.
