Michigan Harvest Gathering

In 2019 3.6 million families used a local food bank. That is enough to fill Spartan Stadium 50 times.

What is the Michigan Harvest Gathering?

The Michigan Harvest Gathering (MHG) is an annual statewide campaign that raises food and funds for Michigan’s emergency food response. Since 1991, Former Attorney General Bill Schuette and his wife, Cynthia Schuette, have partnered with the Food Bank Council of Michigan to help strengthen the capacity of our state’s emergency food response. In its first 29 years, the MHG Campaign raised over 86.4 million meals to help those in need!

The Need

In Michigan, 16% of households are struggling to put food on the table and 21% of children do not know where their next meal will come from. Find out more about your county.

Every $1 helps provides 5 meals.

Virtual Food Drive
Where?

Going Virtual

Rather than physical food and funds drives this year, we are shifting to virtual drives. This is easy, convenient, and most importantly, safe! You may conveniently shop the most requested food bank items on our virtual food drive. This not only saves valuable food bank resources, but it also allows the food banks to make your generous dollar donations go even further.
