Imagine a program that provides food to more than 100 families in less than 2 hours.
In order to assist partner agencies in serving those in need, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan developed a Mass Feeding Program that is currently in place with 6 partner agencies. On a regular schedule, these agency partners receive a truckload full of supplemental food for distribution on the same day. Hundreds of seniors, families and individuals greet the truck’s arrival and receive food assistance.
The Mass Feeding Program’s predictable schedule, flexibility in service delivery, and abundance allows the Food Bank to serve those in need right where they live.
