Michigan Harvest Gathering

HELP US CELEBRATE 28 YEARS OF HELP AND HOPE FOR THE HUNGRY

What is the Michigan Harvest Gathering?

The Michigan Harvest Gathering (MHG) is an annual statewide campaign that raises food and funds for Michigan’s emergency food response. Since 1991, the Attorney General Bill Schuette and his wife, Cynthia Schuette, have partnered with the Food Bank Council of Michigan to help strengthen the capacity of our state’s emergency food response. In its first 28 years, the MHG Campaign raised over 81 million meals to help those in need!

Secretary of State offices throughout Michigan are collecting food donations until November 22, 2017.  Drop off non-expired, non perishable items for Michigan Harvest Gathering.

Kickoff is Tuesday, September 25 at 10 a.m.

Celebratory Closing Luncheon is Thursday, November 8.

THE NEED

In Michigan, 16% of households are struggling to put food on the table and  21% of children do not know where their next meal will come from. Find out more about your county.

Every $1 helps provide 5 meals.
