Reviews for Mid-South Food Bank
I am a board member of this wonderful collegial organization which works for the food-insecure like no other. Besides the executive leadership, the board of directors are proactive and take an active interest in the the well being of Midsouth Food Bank (MSFB) (previously Memphis Food Bank). We as board members strive to link the MSFB with potential donors and also help the organization link up with diverse population groups. Because of the diverse leadership background of the board, the MSFB is able to get support for its administrative growth and is increasingly becoming even more transparent despite its Charity Navigator transparency rating of 70/70. As partners, the volunteers and workers, executives and board members work in tandem in a true team spirit to alleviate hunger in 31 counties of MS,TN and AR. We help kids, seniors and Midsoutherners of all ages and backgrounds. Help us fight hunger and we will continue to be be very frugal with your valuable donations.
