MIDLAND COUNTY GREATER WORKS
Midland County Greater Works serves elderly and disabled monthly by delivering 30 to 40 lbs of food to their homes. Our clients average remaining income for food is $30-$60 / month. Without our services they reported doing without food to afford their medication, rent or utilities.
Our biggest asset is our communities’ involvement in donations and volunteering. The volunteers unload, sort, box and deliver food to over 280 families in the Midland County serving over 400 people each month. Our community is eager to help those in need but generally are at a loss to how to do it. We provide the outlet for our community to serve the less fortunate through monetary funding and volunteer service.
USDA's newest report on hunger in America finds that 12% of the US population does not have enough food. It is reported in Midland County of 163,000 10% is over 65, 7.6% disabled under 65, and 9% overall in poverty. We serve a small percentage of those who are in need.
