The Greater Lansing Food Bank was created in 1981 to meet a need in the Greater Lansing community that became critical during the major recession of the early 1980’s. Now, more than 25 years later, the Greater Lansing Food Bank is still working to address this need that will not go away…the need to feed those less fortunate. Through our network of pantries, related agencies, and partners, our Food Movers Program and The Garden Project, we are working to provide access to good and plentiful food for all. In 2009, nearly 3,000,000 pounds of food was provided to hungry people in Ingham, Eaton and Clinton counties, at a value of more than $3 million.
