Mission: Since 1988, MFSA has been fulfilling its mission of sharing information, ideas and resources, and working to alleviate hunger and poverty. Through grant monies, shelves are able to purchase nutritious and culturally specific foods which aren't often donated. Grants also allow shelves to buy fresh produce and other perishable items difficult to secure in food drives. Grants assist shelves with summer food purchases, typically the time when donations are lowest. MFSA assists food shelves by sharing information, which helps neighboring shelves work together to ensure there are no gaps in, nor duplication of, service.
