MFB Event Report: December 2023


Shoot Down Hunger

MFB Florida's annual "Shoot Down Hunger" clay shoot event on November 4th at the Bermont Shooting Club in Punta Gorda attracted over 80 participants, uniting the community in support of their mission to combat food insecurity. This event showcased the power of unity in addressing hunger and emphasized that even leisure activities can make a difference. With nearly $28,000 raised in one day, it was a successful effort to break down the barriers of hunger affecting many lives.


Harvest of Blessings

Midwest Food Bank Georgia's Harvest of Blessings fundraising dinner took place on October 20th at the Southside Center in Fayetteville, Georgia. The event was attended by approximately 175 attendees and was a resounding success, raising over $50,000 to support our mission. Corporate sponsors for the event included Cooper Lighting, Aberdeen Fine Properties, Eaton Corporation, Panasonic Automotive, Brent Scarbrough & Co., Inc., Tailormade Enterprises, and Piedmont Fayette Healthcare. The highlight of the evening was guest speaker Terry Cummings, a retired NBA player and the Executive Director of our non-profit partner, Hope Egneto Ministries International, Inc.

Peanut Butter Pickleball Tournament

The inaugural Midwest Food Bank Peanut Butter Pickleball Tournament, hosted by Midwest Food Bank Georgia at Flat Creek Country Club in Peachtree City, Georgia, was a resounding success. With 145 athletes in action throughout the sunny weekend, the event showcased the thriving pickleball community and demonstrated the power of collective generosity. The tournament collected an impressive 460 pounds of peanut butter through the support of athletes and spectators, benefiting our non-profit partners. Thanks to the sponsors and the contribution of the PTC Fayette Pickleball Club, with its 900+ members assisting in planning, marketing, and logistics, the event's success sets the stage for an annual tradition, making a significant impact in the fight against hunger. We offer our heartfelt thanks to these sponsors: Salt MedSpa, Peachtree Financial, Georgia Bone and Joint, Corrective Chiropractic, Pickleball Central, Jigsaw Health, and Holbrook Pickleball.


Harvest of Blessing Dinner knocks it out of the park

Midwest Food Bank Texas recently hosted its inaugural Harvest of Blessings dinner, which was a resounding success! This event set a new record for fundraising through a single public gathering, and we are immensely grateful to all who graced us with their presence. We appreciate those who joined us for a delightful evening filled with good food, camaraderie, and inspiration, even on the same night as the historic achievement of the Texas Rangers reaching the World Series. Attendees left the event feeling uplifted by the progress made this year, and we eagerly anticipate what lies ahead for Midwest Food Bank Texas. Our heartfelt thanks go out to everyone who played a role in making this event possible!
