Most people have never heard of DOT Foods in Mt. Sterling, Illinois. Midwest Food Bank is fortunate to have a partnership with DOT Foods which is the largest food serve redistribution company in the United States. 

DOT Foods employs 4,200 people and was founded in 1960 by Robert and Dorothy Tracy. On average about two semi-loads of food are donated every week to MFB and goes to the Morton location for processing. From there, that food is given to food pantries served by the Illinois locations of MFB. 

So, the next time you are on the road, look for a DOT Foods semi with a royal blue truck and a white trailer and say a prayer of thanks for this Illinois business that helps those in need. 

DOT Foods was recently featured in the Peoria Journal Star daily newspaper. To read the article, click here.
