With the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, South Michigan Food Bank has been called on now more than ever before to help ensure that the people of South Michigan have access to the food they need.
In fact, despite a decrease in volunteers and an increase in demand, they have still managed to distribute 43% more food than last year. Seeing the need for additional support during this time, BluFish Consulting has donated $500 to South Michigan Food Bank in order to help with the purchase of food and protective gear for employees.
“We’ve had the pleasure of working with South Michigan Food Bank over the past nine months and we’re aware of the dramatic impact they have made in both our community and the greater region,” said Ryan Traver, President/Owner of BluFish. “Nobody should ever have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, especially in a time like this.”
During the pandemic, South Michigan Food Bank has remained dedicated to meeting the needs of the people they serve. Within one week alone, they distributed 10,440 meal bags and 1,562 produce boxes.
“We’ve been so impressed by the work the Food Bank is doing and the way they’ve gone above and beyond to care for the community. We hope that this donation will not only help them keep up the great work, but that it will help out a lot of people by giving them access to the food they need,” Traver said.
