Join Midwest Food Bank for Giving Tuesday

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.

TenderMercies.LogoThis year, Midwest Food Bank is joining the growing list of givers. We have set a goal of providing One Million Tender Mercies meals to hungry people. With your help, we can do it.

the bowl smallerTender 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.


We aren’t alone in this endeavor. Generous donors have pledged to match the funds that are raised for Midwest Food Bank on Giving Tuesday up to $75,000!  This means your donation will have doubled impact.    So, for Midwest Food Bank to reach our goal of $150,000 for 1 Million Meals, we will need to raise $75,000 on Giving Tuesday, December 3rd, 2019.

$75,000 in Matching Gifts + $75,000 in donations = 1 Million Meals  

Every dollar you donate is double the impact!

Together we can do this!

If you'd rather mail a donation, please send it to Midwest Food Bank, 700 Erie Avenue, Morton, IL 61550. Please put "#GivingTuesday" on the memo line.
