Employees at One Haworth Center in Holland built a corporate garden last summer that
garnered fresh produce for clients at a domestic violence shelter and answered a
call of crisis in more ways than one.
Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes is one of the major food warehouses in Kalamazoo, receiving
on average about 70,000 pounds of donated food a month. They distributed between
30,000 and 40,000 pounds of produce alone over the summer.
New Bridge Card policies will change the need for food assistance in the Kalamazoo
area. Although food pantries, like Kalamazoo Loaves and Fishes, are prepared for
the increase, many people who depend on the Bridge Cards aren’t.
