Midwest Food Bank is honored to partner with WMBD 1470 AM & 100.3 FM and WIRL 1290 AM & 102.7 FM for the annual Harvest for the Holidays campaign. Last year area Farm Bureaus, Sponsors, and the stations’ Agri-Business Department raised over $28,000 for Peoria’s Midwest Food Bank. This year the goal has grown to $80,000.

Midwest Food Bank is a privately funded volunteer organization that supplies food for children and families in need through over 275 community based non-profits in Illinois, Iowa, Missouri and Kentucky. Midwest Food Bank is also active in providing disaster relief and supplies food to alleviate hunger internationally.

“We are excited that this campaign allows locally grown agricultural products to be used in our Tender Mercies feeding program,” said Larry Herman, Midwest Food Bank. “Local volunteers package rice, beans, soy protein and fortified chicken flavoring to improve the quality of life for nutritionally insecure children and families. Tender Mercies is feeding thousands of children and families through backpack programs, township pantries and homeless shelters.”

The Harvest for the Holidays campaign is an opportunity for farmers to donate 10 or more bushels of corn or soybeans to participating grain elevators during the harvest season. Donated grain will be sold on the cash grain market in December. Community members are also invited to participate by donating online at Peoria.midwestfoodbank.org.  All proceeds will benefit the Midwest Food Bank’s food distribution efforts.
