“Choose Hope, Not Hunger,” is this year’s holiday campaign for the Greater Lansing Food Bank.
This is an annual holiday campaign but has changed the theme this year. Workers at the bank say the message is still the same.
“This is a new campaign for us, but every year we want to remind people that we’re here to make sure there’s food on everybody’s plate,” said Executive Director for the Greater Lansing Food Bank Joe Wald.
As more food and other donations come in, the food bank also could use a little extra help. One volunteer says you might be supervised who needs the extra assistance.
“You never know if this is going to go to your neighbor here in town or someone you know, say in one of the FEMA type situations.. you just never know who is going to benefit from this,” said volunteer Tony Lytle.
If you’re short on money or time, officials say there are other ways to help contribute.
“For those who can’t give, they can think good thoughts and they can create heightened awareness, that there are people in our community that need help,” said Wald.
The holiday campaign is planned to run through the January.
