Last week, Cinnaire staff and partners joined to collect 294 food items to donate to the Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB). GLFB is a nonprofit organization that provides emergency food to individuals and families in need in Ingham, Eaton, Clinton, Shiawassee, Clare, Isabella and Gratiot counties. Food is distributed through an extensive network of food pantries and community kitchens located throughout the region.
Luan Nguyen, Cinnaire Disposition Relationship Manager, serves as a member of the GLFB host committee. Luan challenged Cinnaire staff to donate to this cause and our partners stepped up to help us meet our goal. For each item donated, Cinnaire matched a $1 monetary donation for a total of $294. The GLFB will use these funds to purchase food throughout the winter months for partner agencies.
According to the GLFB, $1 of donation can purchase 7lbs of food, providing one meal for a family of four. Cinnaire’s $294 donation equates to potentially 2,058 lbs of food for 1,176 individuals and 294 meals! We wish to thank all of our partners that joined us in this effort.
