About Us

TransparencyKenneth Estelle holds a 2020 Torch Award

When you support Feeding America West Michigan, you’re supporting West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula’s only Feeding America member food bank. No other organization in our region is equipped to process and distribute the volume of food that we do. We appreciate every dollar donated and your gift is always used efficiently: 98% goes directly to our hunger-relief efforts.

Our work is largely made possible by donations from generous individuals, businesses and foundations. Our hunger-relief partners also help us cover the overhead costs of storing and processing the food they receive and reimburse us for food we purchase at wholesale costs.

Below, you’ll find a comprehensive analysis of our finances in our annual reports, 990s and audited financials. If you have questions that are not addressed here, feel free to contact Development and Marketing Director Pattijean McCahill at
