The Livingston Hunger Council is a collaborative body made up of a cross-section of the community dedicated to ending hunger in Livingston County. The Council is made up of government agencies, non-profits, local businesses and private citizens who have committed to making our community a place where everyone has access to the nutritious food they need, when they need it.
Moving toward a future where everyone enjoys that right is a realistic, affordable and morally compelling goal for Michigan. In Livingston County there are some 10,000 people who live in poverty and almost 24,000 people can be described as being “food insecure.” Food insecurity means an individual does not have the resources to eat all of the meals necessary to meet their nutritional needs. Together, the Livingston Hunger Council works to make Livingston County a food-secure community. You can get more information at www.livingstonhunger.com or you can follow us on Facebook.
One of the ways we are addressing this need is through Community Gardens. We have 7 community gardens throughout the area and all the gardens are tended by volunteers. We are putting out a call for volunteers, individuals or groups to help maintain and harvest the produce. You can volunteer for as much or as little as you chose. There is no commitment necessary, any support is greatly appreciated. Right now we are harvesting zucchini, beans and tomatoes.
Anyone interested in supporting this great cause can reach out to the garden coordinator Kay Simmons at 810-986-6406 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
