Midwest Food Bank sends its Tender Mercies rice and bean meals to hundreds of organizations around the U.S. and abroad, including some schools in the Southern Hemisphere that do not operate school lunch programs.
MFB Director Larry Herman comments, “For many children, the Tender Mercies school lunch program is their only meal of the day. We are blessed to be able to help them.”
