NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - On September 18, Feeding America West Michigan will distribute 15,000 pounds of food to people in need at Negaunee High School. The distribution will take place at 4:30 p.m. with registration beginning at 4 p.m.

The Mobile Pantry will contain fresh produce, dairy products and baked goods with an emphasis on nutrition. Clients will not have to show identification or proof of income to receive food; however, they will be required to provide basic contact information and affirm that they are in need of food. They are encouraged to bring their own bags or boxes.

Andrew Brunette, Principal of Negaunee High School said, “We are very positive to host our 10th Mobile Food Pantry with Feeding America on September 18. It is an excellent opportunity for our students to volunteer for the community and it is a much-needed program and we are proud to be involved.”

Food insecurity affects 1 in 8 people in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.

Negaunee High School is located at 500 W. Arch Street, Negaunee, Michigan 49866, and the phone number is 906-475-7861.
