How you can be part of the hunger solution

Give Money
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.
Give Time
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 Food Pantries, 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!
Give Stock
Did you know that donating stock, bonds, or mutual funds can actually give you a greater tax benefit than donating cash? Giving this way can also make a bigger impact on local hunger.
Leave a Legacy
If providing good food to your neighbors in need is something you value, consider including Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank in your estate plans. You can ensure that good food is available to local families for years to come.
Lend Your Voice
In these tough times, the need for food is growing fast throughout West Michigan, even among hard-working families. Help us get the word out. Connect with the Food Bank on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube. You can also get the latest hunger news by email.
Donate Surplus Food
Join the more than 220 farmers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers who fight waste and hunger at the same time by donating their edible surplus food. Your gift may make you eligible for significant tax deductions.
Run a Food Drive
Take a hands-on approach to fighting hunger and stock the Food Bank with items we don’t normally receive from our large-scale food donors. If you want to introduce your church, school, or office to food banking, hosting a food drive is a great way to start.
Buy Food Bank Gear
Wear your heart on your sleeve. Buy Feeding America West Michigan apparel to raise awareness and send meals to those in need. 25% of your purchase will be donated to the Food Bank.
Use a Hunger-Fighting App
