Become an Agency

Do you want to help with hunger relief efforts in Western Michigan and the Upper Peninsula? Are you a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and have the capacity and resources to store and distribute food, meals or other hunger-related services?

If so, you may be just the partner we need, especially in areas of Michigan that lack emergency food services. Our partner agencies distribute directly to those in need and are a vital part of the emergency food chain.  Feeding America West Michigan provides partner agencies access to low- and no-cost food to distribute to clients. We also provide technical assistance and training while we ensure your program meets food safety standards and provides fair and equitable service to clients.

Please note that when starting an emergency food program, it is also important to consider locations of other food programs in your area.  We encourage partnerships with agencies that already distribute food in your community. It may be more economical for you to provide volunteer or financial support to these programs to help expand their hours or the number of people they serve. If you do want to proceed, please complete this pre-application form. It takes approximately 10 business days to process this information at which time a member of the Agency Staff will contact you. Completing this form does not guarantee partnership, it is the first step in the process.
