Service Day at Food Bank of Eastern Michigan

Planners Network kicked off the new school year by returning to Flint for a volunteer activity at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. New MUP students, along with returning ones, traveled to FBEM to assist in packaging food to distribute around Eastern Michigan. FBEM has been particularly involved in helping residents affected by the Flint water crisis. Last year, they distributed 25 million pounds of food throughout the area.

On Thursday, September 1, our group of 18 people packed over 7,600 pounds of food in less than 3 hours! We really enjoyed our time at FBEM and look forward to more volunteering, advocacy and events throughout the year. Thanks to all who participated and made this possible.
