Feeding America West Michigan

Comstock Park, Michigan


Feeding America West Michigan is one of 200 food banks in Feeding America’s nationwide network. It is one of seven Feeding America member food banks located in Michigan. Feeding America West Michigan serves 40 of Michigan’s 83 counties. Its service area spans from the Indiana border north through the western half of the state and extends throughout the entire Upper Peninsula.

The organization was founded on April 23, 1981 as Gleaners Food Bank of West Michigan, Inc. During its early years, the food bank distributed 8,000 pounds of food per month out of a small rented space in southwest Grand Rapids. Since that time, the organization has moved to its main warehouse in Comstock Park and has added two branches, one in Cadillac and the other in Benton Harbor.
