We will be preparing "Tender Mercies" packets at the Midwest Food Bank.
"Midwest Food Bank (MFB)...was started in 2003 when the Kieser family began providing food out of a building on their family farm. MFB began by serving about 10 food pantries in McLean County, Illinois. Today (they) serve approximately 500 organizations across the midwest. The food given out each month now reaches over 100,000 people." (MFB website)
We will be working in a warehouse so please dress accordingly, no open toed shoes, etc. Also, please visit the website and bring a completed volunteer form with you on the day of the meet-up: http://www.midwestfoodbank.org//media/peoria-volunteer-agreement-and-release-form-2011.pdf
If you would like to donate any canned goods please bring them with you on the day of the event! :)
We will probably be going out afterward for a bite to eat/drink.
