Our Values and Vision
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.
Midwest Food Bank's values are built on the Biblical base of the ‘fruit of the spirit’ – Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, Self-control. Our values give us a roadmap to "Sharing the Blessings."
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.
To provide industry-leading food and disaster relief while sharing the gospel message
"Our hope is to help bridge the gap between prosperity and poverty in our community."
-David Kieser, Founder & President
