Since our opening in 2018, Midwest Food Bank Texas has grown to serve over 105 nonprofit partner agencies in over 38 counties. We provide much-needed food to shelters, pantries, churches, and agencies that help our communities experiencing food insecurity. One in every six adults and one in every four children are experiencing hunger here in Texas.
In 2022, with the help of 278 dedicated volunteers, we distributed $15 million in food. In our new facilities, we anticipate providing $100 million in food to more than 300 agencies. All funds raised will go to fighting hunger here in our Texas communities. Your donations will help us in the fight of hunger locally. Here at Midwest Food Bank ninety-nine cents of every dollar donated will make a huge impact on those experiencing hunger in our communities.
Our story starts in 2003 when the Kieser family actioned their faith to share their blessings. They turned a barn on their family farm into a distribution site for local food pantries. Soon they realized the need was greater and there was room for growth. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, the valuable work of our volunteers, and most importantly, the blessings of God, Midwest Food Bank now shares the blessing not only here in Texas but worldwide. Midwest Food Bank currently distributes nearly $36 million worth of food to over 2,100 non-profit organizations each month.
