About the Food Bank Council of Michigan

two ladies.21.jpg

The Food Bank Council of Michigan (FBCM) is a statewide organization that is committed to the alleviation of hunger in our state and in our nation. The FBCM gathers food and funds to help stock Michigan's food banks, which is then distributed throughout the state-wide food bank network. In addition to assisting with the distribution of shelf stable items, the FBCM also coordinates multiple agricultural programs which support   Michigan farmers, as well as bring nutritious, healthy produce into the emergency food system.

Mission

The Food Bank Council of Michigan provides statewide leadership to food banks in their efforts to alleviate hunger.

Vision

Strengthened by strategic alliances and resources, the Food Bank Council of Michigan will provide leadership and optimize systems for distributing food.

Our Work

The FBCM and its food bank members work in all 83 counties of the state to ensure there is a unified system in place to serve the pantries, kitchens and shelters who are the front line in feeding and nourishing individuals on a daily basis.

The FBCM also provides a central, single voice to the issue of hunger. We educate and advocate about the need for food and food security for everyone. Food security is defined by the United States Department of    Agriculture as: access by all people at all times to enough food for an active, healthy life.  Food security is the availability of nutritionally adequate and safe foods and an ability to acquire this  food in socially acceptable ways.
