MFB Georgia satellite distribution in Tennessee celebrates 4 years

In an effort to reach more people, Midwest Food Bank holds satellite distributions where there is not an MFB warehouse. Sometimes these locations are even in other states. August 2021 marked the fourth anniversary of the MFB Georgia satellite distribution in Morristown, TN. 

When this distribution began four years ago, nine agencies received food from MFB Georgia. Now, 30 agencies from Tennessee, West Virginia, and Virginia are being served.

Each month, two semi loads of dry and frozen food are distributed at the Morristown satellite. A dedicated crew of over 30 volunteers runs the operation with minimal oversight from MFB Georgia. Over four years, more than $8.2 million in food has been distributed from Morristown.

"With great love, hundreds of faithful volunteers distribute food from MFB Georgia to over 14,500 individuals in need each month," says Dorsie Rushlo, volunteer leader. "There's a blessing in both the giving and the receiving."

MFB Georgia is thankful to observe this anniversary. We recognize and thank the many volunteers like Dorsie and her husband Ronald who make it happen.
