Mission for Meals (MFM) is mission work right here in our community. It is a campaign uniting people of faith to join hearts and hands to close the meal gap and raise awareness about hunger. By contributing resources and time, you help the Capital Area Food Bank distribute more meals to kids, seniors and families at risk of hunger. Every $1 raised provides 2.5 meals to those in need.
