Getting Help at GLFB

You’re Not Alone

Thanks to the efforts of our donors and volunteers, Greater Lansing Food Bank works to make sure our neighbors have enough to eat. As the regions’ food bank hub, we supply food pantries, churches, soup kitchens and more. As an equal opportunity provider, we respect each individual’s dignity and basic rights.
