As the holiday season approaches in our mid-Michigan communities, neighbors facing hunger know winter can bring more than just the cold. In the seven counties Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB) serves, 1 in 8 individuals face food insecurity, meaning they do not know when or from where their next meal will come. This season, typically filled with joy, can often be marked by the stress of additional expenses for heating bills, winter clothing and extra food.
The holidays shouldn’t be a time of worry. GIVE JOY this season and help GLFB distribute nutritious food throughout our community. Food purchasing costs for food banks across the country are reaching record highs as we battle inflation, supply chain disruptions and considerable cuts in USDA donated food. Your gift of joy will mean that GLFB can continue to stock kitchens across mid-Michigan, connecting families with the food they need to have warm meals.
Help GLFB feed families and give the GIFT OF JOY this season.
