In 2019, over 1 million people and 1 in 5 children in Arizona struggled with hunger. Recently, there has been a rise of demands for food and Midwest Food Bank is still operating, trying to provide for these demands. Since Midwest distributes to over 2,000 other non-profits, they are finding it hard to procure items such as canned food, pasta, cereal, and even items like peanut butter. The goal is to provide not only a fulfilling meal but a nutritious one as well. There are many rising costs that the Midwest Food Bank is encountering when trying to get items for boxed meals, especially now when stores are struggling to keep items on their shelves. These funds will go to the transportation of food items, semi-loads, and the main items needed to complete boxed meals. One semi load costs about $1,500 so every dollar helps.
