For many, the holidays are a time for family gatherings and a surplus of holiday feasts. But for a growing number of families within the communities we serve, the holidays can create additional stress due to financial struggles. We are asking those who can donate to drop off their food items to any of our Genesee County locations or our Saginaw branch November 2nd - December 11th.

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is looking for the following items.

  • Peanut Butter
  • Canned Fruit
  • Juice
  • Boxed Meals
  • Cereal
  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Meats
  • Single Serve Meals
  • Dessert Baking Mixes
  • Condiments
