Ways to Get Help
GLFB’s Garden Project provides access to land, how-to education, free seeds and plants, tool lending, a networking hub and more so that all community members can have access to fresh healthy food through gardening opportunities. It has a network of nearly 100 community gardens across mid-Michigan.
Home Delivery provides safe, convenient delivery of food to mid-Michigan neighbors, free of charge, within a 10-mile radius of our designated delivery hubs to home-bound neighbors and neighbors who lack access to reliable transportation in need of emergency food.
Weekend Kits are bags of food that slip discretely into a child’s backpack and are intended to meet the nutritional needs of children during non-school hours, particularly over weekends or longer breaks.
Care Kits provide ready-made or easy-to-prepare food, utensils and other necessities like toothbrushes, toothpaste, shampoo and other personal care items to neighbors experiencing homelessness. They are distributed through partner agencies and community partners who serve this population.
