MSI Express and Bigger Table Collaborate to Fight Food Insecurity in the Chicagoland Area

MSI Bigger Table Chili

As part of our ESG commitment, MSI Express has partnered with Bigger Table to make a difference in fighting food insecurity in the Chicagoland area.

Recently, MSI Express leveraged our food and beverage manufacturing network and the expertise of 15 plants in six states to collaborate with Bigger Table. This effort resulted in the following accomplishments:

  • Approximately 450,000 servings of Plant-Based Chili Mix: MSI Express's Portage, IN plant donated contract manufacturing and packaging services for Bigger Table's high-protein, high-fiber Plant-Based Chili. The chili was distributed throughout Chicagoland’s food banks and pantries.
  • Approximately 300,000 servings of Family Mac Pack with Cheese Sauce: MSI Express's Batavia, IL plant donated contract manufacturing and packaging services for Bigger Table's nutrient-dense, shelf-stable Mac N Cheese meals for the Chicago Food Depository.
