COVID-19 places unprecedented demand on food banks
MDHHS calls for virtual statewide food drive
They’re young children who relied on their schools to provide at least two meals a day. They’re laid off workers who don’t know how they’ll pay their bills let alone feed themselves. They’re vulnerable seniors staying indoors to protect themselves from the COVID-19 virus.
They’re Michiganders, and they need your help now!
A sample Quarantine Food Box which we are targeting for food insecure seniors. The box contents are well-balanced, high in protein, contain 33 items, weigh 26.5 pounds, and provide 22 adult meals. At the $28 price, it equates to $1.27/meal.
Each box will contain breakfast, lunch and dinner recipe options for the box contents.
We are partnering with the Aging & Adult Services Agency at the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services to deliver food to those in need. Help Michiganders access food during this time by supporting our virtual statewide food drive.
