According to Feeding America, in 2021 53 million people nationwide used a food bank or community program to help put food on the table.
Over the past 30 years, the Michigan Harvest Gathering has raised awareness and funds to end food insecurity. While our efforts have certainly helped, the huge spike for emergency food caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has generated an extraordinary amount of need, especially among children and seniors. Unfortunately, that is a reality for 1 in 7 (nearly 300,000) Michigan children, and 5.3% of Michigan seniors (over 127,000 individuals), who live each and every day in the toxicity of food insecurity. Together, we can change this harsh experience for our most vulnerable residents.
In Michigan, 1.15 million Michiganders struggled to put food on the table in 2020, nearly 300,000 of which were children. To find out more about your county or state, visit map.feedingamerica.org.
