Midwest Food Bank's Values

By definition, values are important beliefs or ideals one has about what is good or bad, desirable or undesirable. They have a a major influence on one's behavior and attitude and serve as broad guidelines in all situations.

In the first half of 2019, the Midwest Food Bank National Board of Directors reviewed and refined the organization's values. Using the Fruit of the Spirit from Galatians 5 as a starting point, the following five values were established.

We recognize and adapt to our agencies (food pantries, schools, soup kitchens, shelters) needs, providing them resources to help them best solve food insecurity for individuals and families.

Our volunteers find purpose in their efforts shared with MFB. Opportunities are made available for any age and array of abilities. The countless hours and expertise of our volunteers is a unique and blessed differentiator.


We warmly welcome community members and partners, engage with them to serve those in need, and sincerely appreciate the joint partnerships we have.


Our communications and actions are always done with honesty and transparency.


We work across all our divisions and within our locations. We place a high priority on collaboration, leveraging best practices for continuous improvement of an already efficient organization.

"Living our values across all divisions will ensure a common culture and continued focus on our Mission," Says Eric Hodel, Midwest Food Bank's COO/CFO. It is our desire to use them in our internal conduct as well as with our volunteers, partner agencies and donors. The National Board appreciates the input from the many MFB leaders who helped update and articulate these values.
