What is the Michigan Harvest Gathering?

two men eatingThe Michigan Harvest Gathering (MHG) is an annual State-wide Campaign that raises food and funds for Michigan’s emergency food response.  There are many contributing factors to why some Michiganders are in need of our help.  Some folks in our communities have temporarily lost their job and don’t have the resources to shop for their week’s groceries.  Many are elderly residents who have exhausted their fixed incomes on medications.   There are children in Michigan who   receive their only nutritious meals from free lunch at school.  Unfortunately, hundreds of Michigan residents are turned away weekly from receiving supplemental groceries or a hot meal because there simply isn’t enough. 

Since 1991, the Attorney General Bill Schuette and his wife, Cynthia Schuette have partnered with Food Bank Council of Michigan to help strengthen the capacity of our state’s emergency food response.  In it’s first 23 years, the MHG Campaign produced over 9 Million pounds of food and over $8.9 Million dollars.  This is a testament to the good work that can happen when many hands and voices come together to alleviate hunger.
