$12K in 12 Days to Fight Hunger

$12K in 12 Days to Fight Hunger

About This Campaign

The month of January included the longest federal government shutdown in history as well as record-breaking cold. Both circumstances dramatically impacted resources for our more than 300,000 food insecure neighbors living in 22 Michigan counties served by the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan and our partner agencies.

With your help over the next 12 days, we can provide 10 additional mobile food pantries from our partner agencies to impacted residents across our coverage area in February. Cost of providing a semi-trailer full of food is approximately $1,200. Our goal -- with your support -- is to raise $12,000 over the next 12 days in order to provide additional food to people in need.

Our mobile pantries feature an average of 13,000-15,000 pounds of supplemental food, allowing partner agencies the ability to target areas of great need. The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan already provides 10-12 mobile pantry deliveries per week. This campaign will allow us to add 10 additional mobile pantries to our planned deliveries in February.

With winter weather still looming as well as another potential government shutdown in February, you can help ensure that additional food resources are available to people in need this winter. Thank you for your support!
