Michigan Harvest Gathering Campaign Begins Oct. 2

Posted on September 19, 2019

The Michigan Harvest Gathering (MHG), a one-of-a-kind emergency food program supported by Michigan hospitals, the Food Bank Council of Michigan’s (FBCM’s) member food banks and more than 3,000 community agencies, kicks off Oct. 2 at Hunter Park GardenHouse in Lansing. The MHA is asking members to renew their support and submit a project leader designation form for this year through the association’s MHG webpage. An updated 2019 project leader list is also available on the webpage.

Michigan Harvest GatheringThe key responsibilities of a project leader will be to form teams to help plan and carry out food and fund drives, as well as work with regional food banks on transportation. MHA members are also encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to financially contribute to the MHG through the FBCM webpage. Members of the healthcare family can indicate they are donating through the MHA, specify the hospital or health system they are affiliated with, and indicate whether they would like their donation to be designated to a specific FBCM-member food bank.  More infomraiton is available in the MHA's MHG Project Leader Handbook.

Complimentary promotional items, including posters and table tents, are also available for order on the MHA Harvest Gathering webpage. Questions on the Michigan Harvest Gathering should be directed to Erin Steward at the MHA.
