South Michigan Food Bank is 1 of 7 food banks in Michigan. Through our connection with the Feeding America national network of food banks and the Food Bank Council of Michigan, South Michigan Food Bank brings in national and statewide food resources into our service area. We also engage in broad regional food sourcing to supply our hunger-relief network, including partnering with local farms to acquire fresh dairy and produce. We safely store millions of pounds of food donated to us by local neighbors, retailers, grocery stores, farmers, manufacturers, and restaurants, as well as food that we purchase. With all this variety, we're able to offer a diverse selection of healthy and nutritious options to all in our service area.
Our 350+ partner agencies across our eight counties make it possible for South Michigan Food Bank's reach to be extensive. These Fresh Food Distributions, pantries, soup kitchens, and other distributions serve their immediate community. At South Michigan Food Bank, our team of 32 staff and volunteers ensures that we meet the need throughout these eight counties and further our mission by implementing new programs and diminishing service gaps.
