MEM President and CEO, Roger Walleck recently presented Food Bank Executive Lindsay Lopez $25,000 for the MEM Matching Gift campaign for the Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri’s Central Pantry.

MEM closed out 2023 with more than $100,000 gifts to 40 organizations. One of the largest gifts was a $25,000 match campaign with The Food Bank for Central and Northeast Missouri.

MEM has partnered with The Food Bank for the last six years in a matching gift campaign which has raised more than $482,000 for The Food Bank and The Food Bank Market project.

“The Food Bank Market project will make a difference for our neighbors in Boone County and beyond – from meeting the immediate need for food to connecting guests with wraparound services that better serve the whole-person,” Jennifer Peck, chief strategy and customer officer for MEM and Food Bank Board Member said. “We are honored to provide a matching gift to a project that will have a lasting impact for years to come.”

MEM’s generosity spans year-round through sponsorship, employee matching gifts, charitable gifts and in-kind services. MEM and its employees supported more than 110 different organizations in 2023. More than 4,400 volunteer hours are available for employees to volunteer annually, and more than 70 percent of MEM employees give their time and treasure.

MEM makes Community Impact funds available to nonprofit organizations on an annual basis. In addition, employees are invited to apply for funding for causes important to them through MEM’s Volunteer Impact Funds, and MEM supports agents by making a 1:1 charitable giving match available to those participating in the Signature Partner program. Funding is available to organizations within MEM’s charitable giving focus areas:

  • Safety
