Mid-South Food Bank
November 15, 2010
In 2009, I helped The Food Bank with their work on a national food survey. We interviewed people at local food distribution centers around the Mid-South area: local food pantries get food from Memphis and give it to peopl e in need. In talking with the clients, I learned how great the need really is in this time of economic hardship. One question on the survey was, "What was your total family income last year?" I was shocked when one woman responded, "$62,000." There was no money coming in now and she was feeding her family any way she could: food stamps, food pantries, soup kitchens, etc. The Mid-South Food Bank was helping to keep her children fed, the most basic of human needs. The food pantries we visited all had nothing but praise the The Food Bank. It was great working with them.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way that mid-south food pantries are appreciative of the food that is provided for distribution to their local clients by the Mid-South Food Bank.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
not change a thing.
