Giving Tuesday Partnership

To provide 200,000 Meals!

The first Tuesday after Thanksgiving comes after a long weekend of consuming. Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday offer us an opportunity to bless our loved ones with gifts. #GivingTuesday presents a palate‐cleansing time to think of those in need.

This year, Better Banks is partnering with Midwest Food Bank’s Tender Mercies meal program. The goal is to provide 200,000 Meals to hungry people. Together, we can do this. Learn how you can contribute at

Tender Mercies meals are a delicious low‐cost, high‐nutrition packaged meal produced at Midwest Food Bank. It consists of rice, beans, fortified soy protein and chicken flavored seasoning and is packaged at Midwest Food Bank and distributed to our partnering agencies to give to the hungry. At a cost of 20¢ per meal, Midwest Food Bank is raising $40,000 to reach the goal. Midwest Food Bank will distribute the 200,000 to their 2,000+ partner agencies across the US and internationally. This high protein meal will provide a nutritious meal for the food insecure in our community and beyond.

What is #GivingTuesday?
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end‐of‐year giving. Since its inaugural year in 2012, #GivingTuesday has become a global movement that celebrates and supports giving and philanthropy. #GivingTuesday unites countries around the world by sharing our capacity to care for and empower one another.
