The Greater Lansing Food Bank is a non-profit organization that provides emergency food to individuals and families in need in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, Clare, Isabella and Gratiot counties. Food is distributed through an extensive network of food pantries and community kitchens located throughout the region. The Food Bank annually serves tens of thousands of people, many of them seniors and children. Our recipients also include the “working poor,” those individuals who are employed but don’t earn enough to meet housing, health, transportation and food needs.
The Garden Project that began in 1983 helped establish and supporst 90+ community gardens and assisting low-income residents with their backyard gardens. The Garden Project also manages our Gleaning program, where we rescue edible produce from MSU and area farms to distribute through our network of agencies.
The Food Movers program rescues perishable food from restaurants, commercial kitchens, bakeries, and grocery stores and delivers to our network of pantries and agencies and subsidized housing complexes. The Food Movers also manage our many food drives that local business and organizations organize to help feed our community. Food Movers also runs Neighborhood Partnerships that distribute food in five Lansing neighborhoods once or twice a month.
