A Detroit Food Bank Gets Food To Where It's Needed Most
Since 2001, the number of people requesting food from southwest Michigan's pantries, shelters and soup kitchens has increased by approximately 70 percent. Gleaners Community Food Bank is trying to do something about that. Last year, the food bank provided over 36 million pounds of emergency food to more than 484 partner soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Michigan.
