There are five important ways you can help meet the ever-growing need for food among your West Michigan neighbors.
Every dollar you can spare for the Food Bank lets us reclaim and distribute enough food for four meals. Just $21 will feed a family of four for a week.
The Food Bank welcomes—and relies on—volunteers 13 and older (or younger when accompanied by parents or guardians). Volunteers work in our warehouses, at our mobile pantry distributions and even on farms picking produce. They save us tons of money, which goes directly into obtaining more food. And they have tons of fun!
Join the more than 220 farmers, manufacturers, distributors, grocers and
restauranteurs who fight waste and hunger by giving us their edible surplus food. Significant tax deductions and liability coverage apply.
In these tough times, the need for food is growing fast throughout West Michigan, even among hard-working families. Help us keep up by talking up how the Food Bank feeds families by starving landfills. Here are some ways you can help get the word out.
The Million Meal March is an ongoing campaign to raise enough money to distribute an additional 1 million meals to families in need. This multi-tiered approach includes a 10K hike and a series of events at local restaurants. Learn more at millionmealmarch.org.
