Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank
Since 1981, Feeding America West Michigan has served as West Michigan’s regional nonprofit clearinghouse for saved, donated food on its way from the food industry to churches and charity agencies that assist needy people.
The food we distribute is drawn primarily from the surpluses and edible/useable errors of local and national food and grocery products companies. Through our seven warehouses, we serve 1,300+ food pantries, homeless shelters, soup kitchens, domestic violence shelters, rescue missions, and other charity agencies across 40 Michigan counties (the western third of the Lower Peninsula and entire Upper Peninsula) who in turn provide that food aid to approximately 100,000 needy families of West Michigan each year. In 2009, we distributed over 24.5 million pounds of food and other goods, that’s over a million pounds every 15 days!
