Fort Myers, FL, April 14, 2021 – Midwest Food Bank of Florida – a volunteer-driven, faith-based organization dedicated to alleviating hunger, malnutrition and providing disaster relief locally, and throughout the world donates much needed school supplies to The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools.
Midwest Food Bank Florida currently supports over 172 nonprofit partner agencies. This means that many of your local churches, veteran supports, shelters, schools, soup kitchens and mobile pantries are likely getting a large portion of their food each month from our Fort Myers warehouse. Every Tuesday our partner agencies come to our warehouse, shop for what they need, 100% free to them. In Lee County, we support 84 partner agencies, which also includes providing food to several Lee County public schools. As part of our community partnership with The Foundation for Lee County Public Schools, we recently donated a variety of school supplies for local children in need. This donation included pens, pencils, pencil cases, notebooks, folders, sticky post-its, and coloring supplies for schoolchildren of all ages.
“At Midwest Food Bank Florida our core values encompass all areas of community engagement. We continue to seek community partnerships both to strengthen our own mission of food relief for our Southwest Florida community, and to find new ways to expand available resources to people in need,” says Karl Steidinger, Executive Director of MFB Florida.
Midwest Food Bank has 12 locations, including ten in the U.S., and one each in East Africa and Haiti. For more information about MFB Florida, please visit our website at midwestfoodbank.org/florida.
