Michigan Harvest Gathering

Michigan Harvest Gathering LogoMichigan Harvest Gathering (MHG) is a one-of-a-kind emergency food program benefiting hungry Michigan families through the Food Bank Council of Michigan’s member food banks and more than 3,000 community agencies including food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters. Through donations to this food and fundraising campaign, Michigan’s private businesses, foundations and nonprofit agencies have provided millions of emergency meals; every dollar donated helps provide five meals. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused major hardship. Since mid-March, food distribution has doubled, averaging 4.5 million pounds of food per week. And now, heading into the fall and winter, the FBCM is expecting a 15% increase – that equates to approximately 667,000 pounds of more food per week. This year’s campaign is fully virtual - more details about how hospitals can generate online donations for their community and a virtual training for project leaders will be coming soon.
