MFB Georgia celebrates volunteers at Morristown, TN

Satellite or remote distributions allow Midwest Food Bank to reach more people without the cost of a physical location. MFB delivers food to a place some distance away from its warehouse and gives it to nonprofit agencies in that area.

MFB Georgia recently celebrated five years of distributing food from Morristown, TN. It was a bittersweet time, as it also marked the day of retirement for volunteers Ronald and Dorsie Rushlow. The Rushlows have led the Morristown volunteer team since the beginning and have made it a time of growth and service.

Starting with 10 nonprofit partners in 2018, the Morristown distribution now provides food for over 30 agencies with feeding programs. Last month 220,000 cases of food were distributed, compared to 31,000 cases five years ago.

"Ronald and Dorsie have been instrumental in the success of the Morristown distribution," says Pat Burke, Executive Director of MFB Georgia. "We thank God for them and wish them well as they begin a time of travel and visiting family."

Volunteers like Ronald and Dorsie are the lifeblood of MFB. Learn about volunteer opportunities at MFB Georgia here.
