COVID-19 Emergency Response

COVID-19 Emergency Response

About This Campaign

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is ramping up our efforts in response to the COVID-19 emergency. The nature of this emergency is unpredictable, but what we do know is that many of our partners, including schools, churches, nonprofits, healthcare facilities are facing closures, limited hours, staffing shortages, or other operational disruptions that present barriers to getting food to people in need.  We are in constant contact with churches, schools, soup kitchens, and other partners to asses what community needs are and how the Food Bank can help fill gaps in services.

With mass closures at schools and businesses, many families in our service area are facing increased and potentially prolonged uncertainty. Supporting the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan helps us continue to be a resource and provide additional services to help alleviate these new pressures on families. 

Please consider creating a fundraising page and sharing it with your social networks. We need your help!
Just click "Participate" to create your own fundraising page.  


We pride ourselves on being a stabilizing force for families and partners in our community. Part of our ability to be flexible and adapt our operations to best serve the community in times of emergency relies on support through monetary donations. Unrestricted donations allow us to procure food, safely store it, pay for transportation and mobile food distribution, and to offset other short-term increases in operational costs.
