MFLCares Gives Back Through Meals from the Heartland

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa – Midwest Family Lending has donated $1500 to Meals from the Heartland through the local mortgage company’s MFLCares program. The funds will be used to support the local non-profit’s mission of “empowering people to save starving children”.

“We are beyond blessed to be a part of such a caring community that includes the recent donation from our friends at Midwest Family Lending,” said Greg DeHaai, Executive Director of Meals from the Heartland. “Donations are critical to our mission as we do not receive government funding. All ingredients are purchased with the generous donations of our volunteers, supporters and community. Meals are distributed to those in need right here in Iowa, across the U.S. and around the world.”

Through MFLCares, Midwest Family Lending employees nominate and select one cause each month to support that is dear to their hearts. Hannah Fuller, mortgage processing associate, nominated Meals from the Heartland after seeing firsthand the impact the local non-profit makes on both the lives of those in need and on those who volunteer.

“Over the years, I’ve had the privilege to volunteer with this organization on numerous occasions educating on the importance of serving others,” Fuller said. “They are changing lives every day, making a difference for everyone involved and demonstrating the importance of serving others.”

Meals from the Heartland is a non-profit organization composed of volunteers who package meals for delivery to starving children in Iowa, across the U.S. and around the world. The 501(c)(3) is made up of volunteers from businesses, schools, churches, community organizations and beyond. Onsite packaging takes place every Tuesday-Saturday at the organization’s West Des Moines Packaging Center. Private or mobile hunger fights also help support the organizations’ mission.

Each volunteer uses more than $100 worth of ingredients and materials to pack about 540 meals per shift. Ingredients are not donated to Meals from the Heartland. Donations help to purchase those ingredients. With generous community support Meals from the Heartland aims to end hunger around the world.
