What We Do

Providing hunger relief, nutrition education, and hope to those in need since 1982.

Our Mission

To enhance the quality of life for those struggling with hunger in South Michigan

See how South Michigan Food Bank is making an impact in our eight counties! It's a team effort; we couldn't do it without the help and support of our partner agencies, volunteers, and community!

Our Food Bank has grown from a small group of people believing in this mission to an organization that reaches thousands of people each year. We partner with 285 agencies over eight Michigan counties to make sure that everyone has access to the nutrition they need to succeed.
