St. Clair County, MI — The United Way of St. Clair County’s (UWSCC) Emergency Services Fund – COVID-19 relief Aid provided a grant to Mid-City Nutrition to help cover the costs of food and meal packaging.
Mid City Nutrition has made many changes in response to the COVID-19 situation to ensure their guests are being served safely. The biggest change has been a transition from dine-in services, where clients could visit the soup kitchen and fill the room for meals together, to carry-out services, where visitors must stay safely distanced and take their meals to go.
The soup kitchen has been committed to providing meals for their clients even though the changes increased their expenses. The funds provided by The United Way of St. Clair County will offset those costs and enable Mid City Nutrition to continue their commitment to their client’s safety and nutritional needs.
The UWSCC has received many contributions to their COVID Relief Fund, including recent donations from Chemical Bank (TCF), MI Association of United Ways,Ms. Sharon Walby, and Mr. Scott Nill. The funds are designated to help address the emergency needs of organizations throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and future recovery efforts.
UWSCC is focused on maintaining accountability by utilizing the volunteer COVID-19 Emergency Response Committee to review COVID-19 funding proposals that are submitted through an online process. To learn more and apply for funding, visit:
