Elks National Foundation Beacon Grant
$4,000.00 (Awarded)

Mid-City Nutrition Program serves our
local community in St. Clair County, Michigan. The staff of employees and
volunteers continue to focus daily, year-round on the war against hunger in our
local community and county.  Mid-City Nutrition program, serves hot and
healthy prepared meals daily, to anyone in need, including children, the
elderly and many local Veterans.  Lunch is served (6) days a week, Monday
thru Saturday.  Dinner is served (6) evenings a week, Sunday thru Friday,
52 weeks a year.  MCN annually serves over 60,000 meals a year.  As
we all know, due to the tremendous impact COVID-19 has had on our nation and
community, we have researched and determined this would be the best use of
these grant funds assisting our own local community in the war against
hunger.  With this
2022-2023 Elks National Foundation Beacon Grant in the amount
of $4,000.00,
this will
help alleviate some of the strain on the staff and volunteers, knowing they can
purchase food and cooking items not regularly donated with the help of this
monetary grant.  Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 members believe in our
community’s growth, charity to those in need, and active participation in many
community services and functions.  It should also be noted that Elks Lodge
343 Past Exalted Rulers Association donates annually, to MCN while providing
"Baskets for the Needy" during the holiday season.
The staff of employees and volunteers are good,
caring people who have assisted the MCN organization for many years while
helping others.  Mid-City Nutrition Program serving St. Clair County is
located 805 Chestnut Street Port Huron, MI. 48060 and can be reached at (810)
