Midwest Food Bank of Illinois-Morton
Midwest Food Bank of Morton opened in 2012 as a result of the increased demand for additional food distribution within Central Illinois. The Bloomington-Normal, Illinois and Peoria, Illinois locations were seeing a rising need, and as more food was required, more space became a necessity. The Morton location was developed to offer more warehouse storage and ensure the fulfillment of all needs.
This warehouse is used for overflow food storage and also arranges trucks to and from the Bloomington-Normal location. These trucks either pick up overflow food from the Bloomington location and bring it to the Morton location or deliver the extras from Morton back to Bloomington when needed. This process allows Midwest Food Bank to serve more agency partners.
The 18,000 square foot Morton warehouse continues to serve the other two Illinois locations of Midwest Food Bank by providing warehouse space and also serving agency partners with food distributions happening twice monthly.
While the Morton, IL location was initially established as an overflow warehouse, it now has multiple purposes. Midwest Food Bank’s Tender Mercies meal program is housed and managed in the Morton location. Tender Mercies meals are packaged by hand and by a machine by volunteers at the Morton site.
The Morton warehouse is blessed to have many volunteers. Stop by and join us as we serve those in need in our area.
