NEGAUNEE, Mich. (WLUC) - Feeding America West Michigan was back in Marquette County with their mobile food pantry on May 16. The pantry was hosted by Negaunee High School.
More than 100 students, grades nine through 12, were out helping to hand out, sort, and load food into people's cars.
About 15,000 pounds of fresh produce and baked goods were distributed to people in need.
This is the seventh time the high school has hosted mobile pantry through Feeding America, and students couldn’t be more happy to volunteer each year.
"The sports teams like track, softball, tennis all came out today, " said senior Luke Skewis. "The community comes to our sporting events, so it's nice to come to things like this and it's a great to give back."
Feeding America said food insecurity affects one in eight people in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula.
