We have recently seen an increase in food requests from our vulnerable seniors throughout Macomb County. Many experience malnutrition and often have to choose between buying their critical medication or food. Most of them lack access to fresh fruit and vegetables. Child hunger is also prevalent and is concerning. Studies show that kids who experience food insecurity in their first five years of life are more likely to lag behind in social, emotional, and to some degree cognitive skills when they begin school. Through our new initiative, "Fresh To You Mobile Food Pantry", we will be reaching seniors and children where they normally gather to distribute fresh fruits and vegetables. Your support will help us to stock the the mobile and take it to homebound seniors and children throughout Macomb County with limited to no access to fresh fruits and vegetables.
