Midwest Food Bank
Founded in 2003, Midwest Food Bank was built on faith, inclusion, and the want to serve others. The Kieser family had a passion for these values and created the Midwest Food Bank from a shed on their family farm into a global organization. Midwest Food Bank currently distributes around thirty-four million dollars’ worth of food each month to over 2,000 non for-profit organizations with a large help from volunteer work. With locations stationed in Illinois, Arizona, Florida, Indiana, Texas, East Africa, Haiti and more, Midwest Food Bank can serve across the world.
“It is a huge blessing for our food bank to have experts like Crosspoint to come alongside of our work. Professional advice, donated work, financial support of our fundraising events, and assistance with our refrigeration needs over the years has been a vital part of the growth and success. As the need for food has grown across the state of Indiana, it is partnerships like this that have allowed us to meet the need. Last year we gave over $66M in food to those in need.”
Crosspoint Power and Refrigeration is pleased to support the work of Mwana Villages. Mwana Villages is a nonprofit ministry that provides refuge to vulnerable children and families with a goal of preserving the family. It is a grassroots organization with two refuges operating in the Republic of Congo that sets forth a model of ethical orphan care wherein family preservation and reunification are the priority.
Mwana’s model of ethical orphan care is centered on five core practices.
- To provide shelter to orphaned and vulnerable children at the Mwana Refuge.
- To create safety for vulnerable children who may otherwise face trafficking, exploitation or death.
- To employ trustworthy local staff who holistically and lovingly care for the children and families.
- To unite each child to his family, either through family reunification or through adoption or foster care when needed.
- To empower vulnerable women toward stability, self-sufficiency and hope.
