Midwest Food Bank of Pennsylvania
In Pennsylvania, an estimated 1 in 8 households suffers from food insecurity. An equally troubling number is the 40% of food that is wasted. That is why Midwest Food Bank is establishing its 11th location here in the Midstate.
Food supply is not the problem; distribution is the problem. We are here to get the food to where it is needed. We will not only serve alongside other agencies here in the Midstate but, thanks to our efficient transportation system, also serve surrounding states. Our location positions us to serve Pennsylvania and the Eastern Seaboard. Our goal is to make this location an epicenter of help.
Our 2021 goal is to reach over 200 feeding agencies serving approximately 60,000 people. With your help, we estimate we will be able to provide around $15 million worth of food in our first full year.
How can you help? Give us a high five:
1: Pray for us as we look for a building in Central Pennsylvania.
2: Volunteer your gifts and talents to further MFB’s mission.
3: Follow us on social media.
4: Connect your friends, church, or civic group to MFB.
5: Donate so together we can build stronger communities and alleviate food insecurity.
