Throughout the year, the Food Bank Council of Michigan manages programs, events and services with the end goals of supplying the food bank network with food and funds and of being a voice for hunger in state organizations, corporations, governement and the public in general. By building long-term relationships with growers, food producers, food distributors and state and national legislatures, the Food Bank Council of Michigan is able to procure and distribute food, as well as help offset transportation costs in moving food, to the entire food bank network.
