Close your eyes and imagine the scents, sights and tastes of your favorite holiday moments. Food is often part of those special traditions that bind us together during the holidays. But when you already don’t have the basic foods you need to thrive, making the holidays special can feel impossible. When you give to Greater Lansing Food Bank, you are helping others celebrate their traditions while honoring your own.
“You have to have blinders on not to see people struggling. We see every month, people asking, ‘Do I get what I need to feed myself, or do I worry about my medicine?’”
-Joe Chahine, volunteer at Immanuel Community Reformed Church (Learn More)
When families don’t have enough food, parents will skip meals to ensure that their children are fed.
Your gift creates a tradition. For decades, our region’s tradition of generosity has helped fill neighbor’s empty plates and offered nourishment for today, while fueling hope for tomorrow. Please make your gift today.
