3rd Annual Report Card to the Community!
The report card is full of great information about the Greater Lansing Food Bank and our partners and supporters in the community.
LANSING, Mich. — The Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB) today unveiled its new logo as part of a reintroduction to the community following its consolidation with the Mid-Michigan Food Bank. The unification, which became effective July 1, was a year in the making and resulted in creating the area’s largest emergency food assistance organization, with services that also encompass sustainability initiatives such as a community garden program (Garden Project) and food rescue program (Food Movers).
The new consolidated food bank remains the Greater Lansing Food Bank in name, and features a new logo and an expanded mission focused on more efficiently and compassionately feeding those in need in the seven counties of Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, Gratiot, Clare and Isabella, with an ultimate goal of reducing food costs while increasing the supply.
Welcome to the Greater Lansing Food Bank website. After nearly a year of discussions and plans, as of July 1, 2012, the Mid Michigan Food Bank and the Greater Lansing Food Bank officially became one unified organization focused on efficiently and compassionately feeding those in need in the 7 counties of Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, Gratiot, Clare and Isabella. This new consolidated food bank will remain the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
To all those who have supported either…or both organizations, thank you. Your ongoing support is more important now than ever. To those who have been helped by either organization, it is our pledge to remain focused on providing food to those in need.
Although the summer months will be a time of transition and learning for all of us, we also see this as a time of opportunity. We look forward to working with our partners of the past, and developing new and innovative relationships moving forward. We look forward to your input, observations and ideas.
