Ongoing: Food Circles feeds you and a neighbor in need

Feeling hungry? So are 1 in 5 West Michigan kids. The difference is that they don’t know where their next meal is coming from.

You can help! Spend $1 with Food Circles to get a tasty dish at a local restaurant and send 4 meals to kids, adults, and seniors struggling with hunger in our region.

Visit joinfoodcircles.org to get the app for Apple or Android.


Ongoing: Temptation Skateboards

Trenary-based Temptation Skateboards is fighting hunger.

Every time they sell one of their custom-designed freestyle Chef boards, they’ll donate $5 to Feeding America West Michigan’s Sault Ste. Marie branch. That means each board sold will send 20 meals to people in need in the Eastern UP.
