Midwest Food Bank
Midwest Food Bank (MFB), a faith-based, non-denominational nonprofit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, was started in 2003 when the Kieser family began providing food out of a building on their family farm. MFB began by serving about 10 food pantries in McLean County, IL. Today we serve over 1,400 organizations across the Midwest, South, West, and East Africa from seven warehouse locations. The food given out reaches over 3.6 million people. The amount of food we distribute has steadily grown over the years as we strive to fight hunger. We receive donated food from manufacturers, distributors, grocers, community and organizational food drives, and from individual donations of time, food, & funds. Today, we distribute over $11.5 million in food each month. As a faith based organization, it is the mission of Midwest Food Bank to alleviate hunger and poverty by gathering and distributing food donations to not-for-profits and disaster sites without cost to the recipients.
CitySquare (formerly Central Dallas Ministries) fights the causes and effects of poverty through service, advocacy, and friendship. Working together as a community, we feed the hungry, heal the sick, house the homeless and renew hope in the heart of our city. Working hand in hand with our neighbors - we do not have clients - we develop sustainable partnerships that provide support and encouragement to all so that everyone has the opportunity to achieve their full potential.
