Last month, Display Pack hosted a golf outing in order to raise money for Feeding America West Michigan. The 81 golfers in attendance raised $9,500 and Display Pack contributed another $5,500 on top of that. That brought the total raised to $15,000. Since every dollar donated to Feeding America West Michigan provides four meals’ worth of food to neighbors in need, the food bank can fill 60,000 plates with the funds raised!

“We were overwhelmed by the generosity of our vendors and want to give them thanks for supporting this important cause,” Ken Schauss, Director of Marketing and Sales at Display Pack, said.

1 in 8 people in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula is food insecure. As Feeding America West Michigan works to increase food security, the support of businesses like Display Pack is crucial.

“This is a cause Display Pack wants to not only bring attention to but also help end by actively supporting Feeding America West Michigan,” Ken said.
