Mid-South Food Bank
November 9, 2010
i need to mention that i am married to the person who is currently president and ceo of the midsouth food bank.
because of that i have experience in observing how the midsouth food bank serves people in our area who are in need of one of life's essentials.
you might know that throughout the midsouth (memphis - and many counties in western tennessee, northern mississippi and crittendon county, arkansas) there are food pantries operated by volunteers from, mostly churches, that are enabled to serve people who would otherwise go hungry with food provided by the midsouth food bank. this food is provided at no cost to the food pantries who pay only a small handling cost. i know of no complaints on the part of food pantries at the friendly and efficient service they receive.
the midsouth food bank does a hugely effective job at soliciting receiving and distributing free food and the same at raising money for efficient food purchases and operations.
all this is done in spirit ad practice of honest give and take, of respect for all and love for those served.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
seeing the relief and gratitude of those receiving food at the food pantry operated by my church.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
move their operations and warehouse from three smaller buildings to one more efficient building.
General Member of the Public & i visited on many occasions and am a modest donor.
