Transcript

  • 1. * Teays River Investments employees serving Midwest Food Bank
  • 2. * We serve because we feel a calling to meet the needs of those who are hungry in Indiana.
  • 3. * Midwest Food Bank: to alleviate hunger and poverty by gathering and distributing to not-for-profits and disaster sites without cost to the recipients. * Teays River Investments: through the application of our knowledge and experience in agriculture, we aim to reduce inefficiencies in the agricultural industry, while improving the quality, safety and affordability of our nation’s food supply. *
  • 4. * In the U.S. 1 in 6 struggle to choose between food and basic necessities * 1 in 8 Hoosiers are hungry * More than 695,000 people receive emergency food aid in Indiana, including more than 295,000 children * Midwest serves over 250 agencies in Indiana who impact over 60,000 individuals each month *
  • 5. *“Midwest Food Bank strives to bridge the gap between prosperity and poverty in the name of Jesus Christ.” -John Whitaker, executive director, Midwest Food Bank *There are 4 Midwest Food Bank locations: Indianapolis, Indiana; Atlanta, Georgia; and Bloomington & Peoria, Illinois *
  • 6. * Teays is a food and farming company with operations across the US * Their team works with the production of key food items like milk, table grapes and seeds * As a result the interest to work with Midwest in their mission to serve those who are not properly fed in Indiana is high * Their team understands food and the need for quality in everyone’s diet. So giving time and money to support Midwest Food Bank is a natural fit for the the team at Teays. *
  • 7. Serving with our team at MFB was a blessing for us as much as Midwest. We are in the food production business and we know the level of food needs in Indiana. Being able to support those who meet those needs is a great experience. Christ calls us to serve the least of these – MFB is doing that. I was happy to be the hands, back and feet to help in part of their service to area food banks. A great group and a great way to serve! ~ Richard *
  • 8. * The Teays team will continue to support Midwest in their efforts to serve the hungry and less served citizens in Indiana. * This mission is one that will continue both via Midwest’s work and through the commitment of Teays to bring lower cost and high quality food to the marketplace. * Serving both as a supplier of food and as volunteers are ways that Teays can continue to support food needs in Indiana. *
  • 9. * Continuing to expand services to the hungry in Indiana is a goal of Midwest. * This means, more structure and connections to food banks & agencies in the State. * Thus the additional grant money would be used to connect to additional agencies and expand their services to more areas in Indiana and around the country. * This would be through additional facilities, food procurement methods and delivery options. * Every $1 donated/invested in Midwest’s system generates over $35 of food given to those in need. *
