Partner With Us

It takes collaboration to end hunger.

We partner with various organizations across 8 counties to make sure that thousands of people facing hunger in our community have access to nonperishable goods, fresh produce, meat, & dairy.

Partnership Opportunities

The Food Bank relies on 501(c)3 community partners to establish and run food pantries and host Fresh Food Distributions. We couldn’t feed South Michigan without these on-the-ground partners working to get food into the hands of their neighbors who are struggling with hunger.

To learn more about ways your company or organization can partner with the Food Bank, reach out to our agency relations team at (269) 964-3663 or complete the Partner Agency Interest Form below. Someone will be in touch with you soon!

Corporate partners invest in our community and the mission of the Food Bank by offering things like food drives, donations, and volunteering. We’re able to sustain our work through these partnerships, and corporations can add to their business culture by aligning with a cause that has a measurable impact in their community.

To learn more about how you can become a corporate partner with the Food Bank, contact us at info@smfoodbank.org

Local farmers and retailers supply much of the food that we store and distribute. In our shared desire to keep food from being wasted, we are always interested in partnering with more packers, manufacturers, and growers.
