Neighbors in Action: Greater Lansing Food Bank

Dec 9, 2015

Caring for the poor and hungry is a natural impulse for many people around the holidays. Food banks tend to be busy in December, moving product in and out. Here in mid-Michigan, the Greater Lansing Food Bank is confronting an issue facing many others across the country: more demand, yet fewer donations. Current State's Kevin Lavery speaks with executive director Joe Wald.


It’s Wednesday, and time for our weekly Neighbors in Action series. This is the time of year when our most charitable impulses kick in and our generosity flows. Many people like to donate food to those in our community who are going without. That’s true again this year, but one prominent food distribution hub in mid-Michigan finds itself revamping the way it does business.

Current State’s Kevin Lavery speaks with Joe Wald, the Greater Lansing Food Bank's executive director.
