In 2018, we were blessed with $145,000 on #GivingTuesday!
(Information regarding 2019 #GivingTuesday will be available here in October.)
The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving comes after a long weekend of consuming. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday offer us an opportunity to bless our loved ones with gifts. Giving Tuesday presents a palate-cleansing time to think of those in need.
Tender Mercies, a nutritious and tasty rice and beans meal, is packaged at Midwest Food Bank and distributed to our partnering agencies to give to the hungry. It costs only 15¢ per meal. One million people can be fed for only $150,000. Your Giving Tuesday donation will provide those meals.
Please join us in feeding a meal to one million people. Any donations given through the form below, will go toward the Giving Tuesday goal. Together, we can bring hope to hungry.
Not able to make a monetary gift at this time? Volunteering is another great way to be a part of #GivingTuesday. To learn about volunteer opportunities at any Midwest Food Bank location, click here.
