Michigan Secretary of State Ruth Johnson hopes you will donate to her office’s annual Harvest Gathering. The food drive launched on Wednesday with Johnson telling WSJM News the program helps provides millions of meals each year to those who are struggling in the state.
“It started in 1991, and so far it’s provided 8.3 million meals, which is really important,” Johnson said. “Our goal this year is to collect enough food for two million meals, for some people, it’s just very, very important.”
You can drop off non-perishable food items at Secretary of State branch offices all throughout Michigan through November 22. Johnson tells us 16% of Michigan residents need food assistance. That’s enough people to fill Comerica Park 41 times
