At the Greater Lansing Food Bank, our mission goes beyond serving the emergency food needs of our clients. Our programs are also designed to foster self-sufficiency, sustainability and community building.
Part of the GLFB’s mission is to help those in need toward self-sufficiency. The Garden Project does just that.
This program provides access to land, how-to education, free seeds and plants, tool lending, a networking hub and more. This helps ensure that everyone in our community can have access to fresh, healthy food.
We support a network of more than 125+ community gardens and more than 400 home gardens, serving an estimated 7,000 people. The Garden Project also manages our gleaning program, which rescues quality produce from Michigan State University and area farms to distribute through our network of agencies.
