What Does Feeding America West Michigan Do?

warehouse-e1320255606337

Feeding America West Michigan exists to ensure safe food is available to the hungry in our community. In 2016, we distributed a record 28.9 million pounds of food, the equivalent of 24 million meals.This food comes from hundreds of farmers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers that have edible food they can’t sell because of overruns, order errors, misprints, and other unexpected occurrences.

We distribute that reclaimed food to pantries, shelters, after-school programs, and other anti-hunger agencies in 40 Michigan counties.

Nearly 1,100 agencies use Feeding America West Michigan to provide food to an estimated 492,100 people every year. We also send food directly to people in need through our local Mobile Food Pantry Program.

For every dollar donated to our organization, we can provide 4 meals to people in need. A gift of just $21 can feed a family of four for a week.
