On Thursday, September 21, Midwest Food Bank had the blessing of hosting an open house at our new facility.
Guests followed a map for a self-guided tour. At the end of the tour, delicious hors d'oeurvres were ready to enjoy. At 4pm, everyone gathered for a McLean County Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting.
As with every MFB endeavor, volunteers played a major role in the success of the day. They helped with preparation, answered questions on the tour, and prepared and served the food.
Thank you to everyone who helped make the day a success, and more importantly, to the LORD for blessing us with a wonderful facility from which to serve Him.
