Midwest Food Bank (MFB), a faith-based, non-denominational nonprofit 501 (c) (3) charitable organization, was started in 2003 when the Kieser family began providing food out of a barn on their family farm. MFB began by serving about 10 food pantries in McLean County, Illinois. Overall, MFB serves over 1,100 organizations across the Midwest, South, and East Africa. The food given out each month now reaches nearly one million people.
Midwest Food Bank - Florida Division, began in the Spring of 2014 when a board of volunteers was organized to fulfill our mission of "Sharing the Blessings" with the addition of a Florida location. At the end of July 2014, a building was purchased in Ft. Myers, FL. We currently serve over 25 organizations.
