Midwest Food Bank has an opportunity to repurpose warehouse and office space. We plan to: 

Build a large capacity freezer and cooler - to increase the amount of nutritious food donations we are able to accept, store, and distribute.

12 truckloads of nutritious food storage

Increasing the amount of nutritious food is vital. We often have to refuse semi-loads of fresh and frozen food donations due to lack of cold storage capacity.

Create a community gathering space - to share our facility and to provide our volunteers and community a place to meet, gather and serve together.

3,000 square foot community gathering space

To thank the over 3,500 volunteers serving annually, we plan to create a community gathering space for businesses, civic and church groups and families to use.

Impacting our community. Goal 1.5 Million dollars
