Our Values

 

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."

  

SERVING THOSE IN NEED

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.

 

VOLUNTEER EMPOWERMENT

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.

 

EMBRACING OUR COMMUNITIES

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

 

INTEGRITY

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

 

TEAMWORK

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.

 

"Our hope is to help bridge the gap between prosperity and poverty in our community."

-David Kieser, Founder & President
