Stop Hunger Challenge-March & April 2021

No one should have to worry about how they will afford to feed themselves or their family. Many people in our community are faced with this concern every day.  Hunger does not discriminate. Hunger does not care about gender, age, race or religion. Hunger can affect people who are unemployed or working full-time.  EFPN will be conducting its annual “Stop Hunger Challenge” during the months of March and April.  Food and money collected during this time will count towards this challenge.  Our goal for this campaign is $80,000 in food and money.  Donated food, personal care and cleaning items are valued at $1.00 per item .  We are once again very fortunate to have an anonymous donor offer a match for all donations.  EFPN will receive a check from this donor in proportion to the total funds and food, personal care and cleaning items received during the challenge period.  The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan(FBEM) is offering a 10% credit on our account for all money donated to us. Pantries order food from  the FBEM that is not donated. The BackPack Buddies  food for schools program comes from the FBEM.  Donations toward any of our programs or specific pantries will qualify for the campaign.  Monetary donations may be sent to EFPN, P.O. Box 2521, Midland, MI 48641-2521. You may also donate through our website, www.midlandcountyefpn.org . Food donations may be donated to any of our pantries or warehouse dropbox at 503 S Saginaw Rd.  Winston Churchill said, “You make a living by what you do, buy you make a life by what you give”.  Thank you for your past support of EFPN.  We appreciate your continued support  so we can all help those in need of food in our community.
