2022-2023 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‚Äôs 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) 334-7566.
