There is help available for you and your family.
The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan assists hungry individuals and families throughout eastern Michigan in many ways. The Food Bank is a key source of food in our 22 county service area for a network of “partner agencies” serving those struggling to afford food. Many of these partner agencies are food pantries, enabling people to pick up and receive an assortment of basic food and grocery supplies.
If you, your family, or someone you know is in need of food assistance, here are three resources for help:
- The Agency Locator: Enter your address to find a food pantry near you.
- The United Way’s 211 “First Call for Help”: Call 211 or visit mi211.org for listings of food pantries and other agencies that provide services you might need such as utility assistance, diapers, clothing, job training and more.
- The SNAP Outreach Team: Let us help you navigate the application process for financial food assistance through the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Bridge Card). Click here to learn more about SNAP.
