It all started back in 2003 when the Keiser family began providing food out of a building on their family farm in McLean County. Today, the organization serves more than 600 food pantries throughout the Midwest.
During our tour of the facility, we learned how Midwest Food Bank handles the donations, distributions, and volunteers that allow the organization to feed more than 225,000 people each month!
At the end of our tour, OLLI members had the opportunity to help prepare a food delivery. Apples had been donated that day, so it was our task to help pack the fruit for distribution. OLLI thanks Julie Brooks and everyone at Midwest Food Bank for coordinating our visit and giving us a glimpse inside your organization.
