“Farm Share is humbled to have been ranked as the #1 Food Bank in America. This is a testament to our hard working and mission driven employees. We are also grateful to be joined in the national top 10 rankings by one of our great food bank partners in Florida, Midwest Food Bank. Together we have worked hand in hand to fight food insecurity and respond to statewide disasters such as the COVID-19 pandemic and most recently Hurricane Ian. Florida is blessed to have two great independent food banks working collaboratively to lead the fight against hunger throughout the state.” Said Farm Share’s CEO – Stephen Shelley
“Midwest Food Bank continues to provide food and relief to those in need. In 2022, that need increased due to inflationary costs that put pressure on households. And that need hit home for our Florida division located in Fort Myers with the devastation caused by hurricane Ian. I am thankful for the MFB’s ability to quickly respond and appreciative of the volunteers and donors who help fuel our mission forward.” Said Eric Hodel CEO – Midwest Food Bank
This is a proud moment for the state of Florida as we can boast having two organizations that are dedicated to the progress and betterment of Floridians. Our food banks have had many challenges this year and we are proud that our teams were able to finish the year with such great news.
