The Salvation Army and Midwest Food Bank Partner to Serve Hurricane Survivors

The Salvation Army and Midwest Food Bank, a longtime disaster partner, are working together to add emergency supplies to the growing relief operations supporting those impacted by Hurricane Harvey. Midwest Food Bank will be collecting items to sort into food boxes and hygiene kits. These supplies will be delivered to disaster sites by Midwest Food Bank, where they are distributed to those in need by The Salvation Army.

Mike Hoffman, Director of Operations for Midwest Food Bank, shared that "Since Hurricane Katrina, The Salvation Army and Midwest Food Bank have partnered together to deliver over 275,000 food boxes to disaster events. By working together, we can support survivors in a coordinated fashion."
