For many years the Feinstein Foundation has offered an incentive to pantries to collect funds and food during the months of March and April. This year the Feinstein Foundation has decided to suspend their challenge. The Midland County Emergency Food Pantry Network has been very fortunate to have anonymous donors come forward and offer an incentive to donors who contribute food and money to EFPN in March and April. EFPN will receive a check from these donors in proportion to the total funds and food items received during the challenge period. Also, one of our supporting organizations will offer an incentive of 2% of the value of all food and money donated, up to a maximum incentive of $2000. All food and money collected from March 1 to April 30 will be counted for this “Stop Hunger Challenge”. Food items are valued at $1.00 per item. In addition, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is offering a 10% credit on our account for all donated money we receive during this period. In 2014, we spent almost $135,000 with the Food Bank for food purchased for our regular program as well as the BackPack Buddies Program. A credit would help us reduce this bill. Our goal for this campaign is $75,000 in food and money. Please consider giving at this time. Donations toward any of our programs will qualify for the campaign. Monetary donations may be sent to EFPN, P.O. Box 2521, Midland, MI 48641-2521. Food donations may be brought to any of our pantries or to our warehouse location at 503 S. Saginaw Rd. Please call the pantries or our office at 486-9393 to arrange a time for delivery. Many of our supporting churches collect food for us all year long. If you are a member of one of these churches, you can bring your donations to your church.
