Project Description

Hear a fresh new perspective from Food Bank of South Central Michigan’s new CEO, Peter Vogel. Peter is focusing on expanding and strengthening relationships with partnerships throughout the network.

Phil and Gerry also discuss Feeding America’s newest release of the Map the Meal Gap study – https://map.feedingamerica.org/. Although the overall food insecurity rate improved from 16% to 14%, 1 in 6 children are still facing food insecurity in Michigan.

Lastly, as many of you know, Gleaners Community Food Bank received ‘Food Bank of the Year’ award from Feeding America – this is like a Nobel Peace Prize in our world! Way to go, Gerry and team!
