MFB Pennsylvania making changes to serve more people
"Kudos to our staff, volunteers, and advisory board members who have been moving pallets, clearing out rack spaces, and working with us to make these transitions," says Kathy Anderson-Martin, Executive Director of MFB Pennsylvania.
Here are some examples of facility improvements:
• Exterior freezer and refrigeration containers have been retrofitted and are now accessible from inside the warehouse. Custom-made roll-up doors were installed, and this improvement makes it possible to accept, store and distribute more refrigerated and frozen products.
• The warehouse is being reconfigured so more food partners can enter, shop, and retrieve their food safely and efficiently.
These projects were possible due to various grants, in-kind donations, and volunteer support.
"While not very glamorous or exciting, these projects enable Midwest Food Bank to rescue, warehouse, and distribute more food, free of charge, to our 200-plus list of nonprofit partners who are feeding people in need throughout Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey," says Kathy.
