A volunteer group from a local church spent time in our warehouse recently bagging high quality dried Cranberry Beans. Thanks to this productive crew our partnering agencies will receive these nutritious beans along with recipes and tips for preparing dried beans.

Small Gifts give Much Hope

Who says SMALL givings can't make a BIG difference?  Generous school children and families from Peoria Academy collected food on a cold November day to benefit those we serve at MFB.
