The Food Bank Council of Michigan (FBCM) was founded in 1984 through the cooperative efforts of the state’s regional food banks. The purpose of FBCM was to implement a unified strategy to address and alleviate hunger statewide by increasing emergency food resources and advocating on behalf of the hunger relief network. At the time, many cities in Michigan faced unprecedented unemployment rates and communities suffered as a result. Michigan food banks stepped in to provide emergency support for families and individuals without enough food.

Over the past 33 years, FBCM and Michigan’s food banks have been agile and determined while facing high levels of food insecurity. The network has developed innovative strategies to respond to the specific needs of each community, sourcing large amounts of food at reduced costs and developing innovative programs and partnerships to increase food security for Michigan residents. Currently, 15% of Michigan residents and 18% of all children are considered food insecure. With a strong, unified Board of Directors, inspired executive leadership, and a talented group of staff members, FBCM is poised to execute a visionary strategic plan with the goal of creating a food secure Michigan.
