Since 1981, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan has grown to serve more than 331,000 people annually through a network of over 700 Hunger Relief Partners, including partner agencies, schools, and other community organizations.
Nearly half of the more than 29 million pounds of food we distribute each year is FRESH. How does that impact our communities? It means:
- 9 million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables, including 24 types of Michigan-grown produce
- 2 million pounds of meat and protein
- 941,000 pounds of dairy products
Your continued support helps us fight hunger and offer our neighbors consistent access to healthy, nutritious food.
