Today officially marks the start of our March Against Hunger campaign. Throughout the months of March and April the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan partners with various agencies in order to raise funds that help feed those in need. Participating agencies will solicit the sale of “boot prints” to local businesses for customers to then purchase and display. The recommended donation for said boot prints is only $1, which can provide 6 meals to those in need!
The entire campaign is a Food Bank tradition that, aside from procuring funds, helps to raise awareness throughout Eastern Michigan. Our Hunger Relief Network serves nearly 200,000 food insecure residents every year, including 25,000 children. Without the help of people just like you, these Michiganians would likely have to go without the nutrition they so desperately need.
So how can you help? Spread the word on social media using the hashtag #MarchAgainstHunger and consider donating to the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan at the following link: https://www.fbem.org/donate-fb/
Together, we can truly take a stand and make a difference in someone’s life. We can MARCH AGAINST HUNGER.
