"It seems to me that every person, always, is in a kind of informal partnership with his community. His own success is dependent to a large degree on that community, and the community, after all, is the sum total of the individuals who make it up. The institutions of a community, in turn, are the means by which those individuals express their faith, their ideals and their concern for fellow men." -- Charles Stewart Mott, 1875-1973

You can assist us in the feeding of hungry children by simply donating some of your time or talent. Everyone has a special talent, so call us and let us know what you do best. We are sure we can find a way for you to leverage your skill to eliminate hunger in your schools. Several of our volunteer opportunities include such things as sorting food, moving food from storage location to school, and set up. Contact the Foundation for further information and to get involved at 248-740-7600 or contact us.
If you're not in the food industry, you can still help us fight hunger in your community by donating resources. If you can drive, have a truck and/or van that can be used for deliveries, if you have employees who are looking for a way to make a difference, we'd love to hear from you! We are also in need of backpacks for these children to use to carry the food home.
Your Company or Business can be supported through our organization and website. For more information, please contact us.
