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
* 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.
* Continuing to expand services to the hungry in
Indiana is a goal of Midwest.

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
* 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.
