Special events help sustain the food bank’s supply in the lean months of spring and summer when donations drop off. In November, we host Can the Griz, a friendly off-field rivalry between U of M and MSU. This food drive has become the largest community-wide food drive in recent years and encourages competition and generosity. After we wrap up Can the Griz, we look forward to Thanksgiving morning and Huffing For Stuffing, a Thanksgiving Day walk/run fundraiser. Spring For Food helps us replenish our store during the spring months.
Nonperishable donations can be dropped off at most local grocery stores. Look for donation bins near the front of each store.
Donations during off-peak hours are encouraged (8 am- 12:00 pm or after 2:30 pm).
