Johnny Gives Back at South Michigan Food Bank

Earlier this fall, a group of team members from Johnny’s Headquarters volunteered at South Michigan Food Bank, and we found the experience so fulfilling that we came back again a few weeks later. This time, our group helped pack a whopping 850 food boxes for senior citizens who are facing hunger in our region.

That’s a lot of cans and boxes to move, but it’s just a small slice of the important work the SMFB does all year. Believe it or not, it provides 33,000 meals a day and over 11 million pounds of food to local families every year, and it’s only one of many food banks fighting hunger all over the country.

“Food insecurity is a real problem for many people in our community,” says Johnny’s COO Mike LaBerteaux. “At Johnny’s, we live up to our value of ‘Be Neighborly,’ and helping our local food bank give our neighbors enough to eat is one way for our team to do just that.”

 

 

If your family or organization is interested in helping, the SMFB and the other 200 food banks nationwide are always looking for volunteers to sort and pack food, staff food pantries, deliver meals, or even work in their garden in-season. It’s a fun and fulfilling way to spend your day, so find your nearest food bank now and give a little of your time to fight hunger in your community today.
