Disaster Relief for Texas

 As a Salvation Army first responder, Midwest Food Bank is answering the call to send disaster relief food boxes to Texas. By the end of Hurricane Harvey, up to 100 inches of rain is possible. Already over 30,000 people are seeking temporary shelter.

The extreme and widespread damage calls for long term relief efforts.

Two semi loads of Family Food Boxes have been sent to be sent to Arlington, Texas, and two more will be going this week. Midwest Food Bank's Family Food Boxes contain enough shelf-stable food and supplies to provide for a family of four for about five days. MFB delivers the boxes to disaster sites where they are distributed to those in need by the Salvation Army. Volunteers assemble, pack, load and drive the boxes to disaster sites.

To offset the cost of food and transportation for the boxes, donations may be sent to Midwest Food Bank, 2031 Warehouse Road, Normal, IL 61761, or click here.
