Huron Elks Lodge 343 presented the Elks National Foundation 2021-2022
Gratitude Grant of $2,000.00 to the Mid-City Nutrition Program who serves
St. Clair County Michigan, focusing on the war against hunger in our county.
Their goal is to serve delicious, hot, and healthy meals to anyone who is in
need. Lunch is served 6 days a week Monday thru Saturday and dinner is served 6
evenings a week Sunday thru Friday. Last year they were able to serve over 60,000
meals locally with the help of donations and volunteers. Due to the
tremendous impact COVID-19 has had on our community we researched and
determined this would be the best use of the targeted funds to assist our local
community in the war against hunger. Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 members believe
in charity and active participation in community service. As we all know, it
can be very difficult for anyone to seek assistance in times of need. We know
that Mid-City Nutrition Program treats their clients with dignity and respect.
Our goal is to actively participate with MCN in serving delicious, hot, and
healthy meals to anyone who is in need. We will measure the success by our Port
Huron Elks Lodge 343 members active participation in this new venture. We believe,
that after their initial involvement with MCN, our members will be inspired to
seek out future opportunities to serve our community.
