Feeding the Hungry
Hunger and food insecurity are significant problems facing our country and communities. We are a food charity with a desire to demonstrate God's love by providing help to those in need. Our values give us a roadmap to "Sharing the Blessings."
What Makes Us One of the Best Volunteer Organizations?
We seek to alleviate hunger and poverty by delivering food and providing disaster relief to those who need it most. Our goal is to make a difference in our communities and create volunteer opportunities for all.
Focusing On Those In Need
At Midwest Food Bank, we recognize the need to know our agency partners (food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, etc.) and those they serve. We strive to adapt our resources to meet their changing needs.
Putting Others First
Midwest Food Bank recognizes and values every person and his or her differences. All leadership, staff, agency partners, and volunteers are treated fairly, with dignity, and with respect. Working with a broad range of ideas and backgrounds, we strive to bring hope and relief to our communities.
Honesty & Integrity
In all of Midwest Food Bank’s dealings, we strive for honesty and integrity. We intend to use wise stewardship in all situations. Midwest Food Bank is independently audited, and our financial information is readily available to the public.
Midwest Food Bank’s volunteers are the life-blood of the organization. Work can be done by a wide array of abilities and ages. The group volunteer opportunities for family, church, civic, and work groups, as well as volunteer opportunities for individuals, make it possible to serve those in need.
Fighting food insecurity requires that we continually grow and collaborate. We strive to connect with donors, experts, partners, leaders, and communities every day to attack the problem of hunger from all angles.
"Our hope is to help bridge the gap between prosperity and poverty in our community."
