helping - Feeding America can provide four meals of food for every donated dollar. Miedema is proud to be working with an organization that can provide such an important service.
Miedema Produce is grateful to be a supporter of the West Michigan branch of Feeding America. Founded in 1979, Feeding America is a network of more than 200 food banks and food rescue organizations. The West Michigan branch serves approximately 100,000 families in 40 Michigan counties, from Berrien County in Southwest Michigan, to the northernmost areas of the Upper Peninsula.
As a company, we are blessed to have these opportunities to help our community. By donating a portion of our produce, we’re able to help feed hungry families, while at the same time making West Michigan a healthier, happier place.
Feeding America is truly a remarkable organization. Last year, the West Michigan branch alone saved almost 25 million pounds of high-quality food from going to waste and redirected that food to families in need. Please join us in supporting Feeding America! You can help by donating your money, your time, your food, or even by just getting the word out. Find out how you can help.
