November 26, 2019

Home Sweet Home Ministries and Midwest Food Bank are pleased to share the results of this year’s Give Thanks initiative. With the generous support of the community, 2,418 families were served, impacting almost 9,000 individuals.   

Meal boxes complete with turkeys were distributed on November 23rd and 25th at Midwest Food Bank with the aid of over 200 volunteers. Home Sweet Home Ministries and Midwest Food Bank would like to thank everyone involved including all those who donated and volunteered as well as Thrivent Financial, Hy-Vee, Schnucks, and Great Plains Media.

“This would not be possible without the help of our community and churches throughout the area, and volunteers’ efforts,” says Tara Ingham, Midwest Food Bank’s Executive Director. By each of us sharing our blessings, we are able to give our neighbors in need a reason to be thankful this holiday.”

“Every year it’s an amazing display of generosity and compassion,” adds Matt Burgess, Home Sweet Home Ministries’ Chief Operating Officer. “It’s such a blessing to see the community come together to help ensure those in need in our community have a Thanksgiving meal to share.”
