Accidently came across this site today on the Department of Agriculture homepage.  There’s a whole bunch of recipes for Michigan grown ingredients.  I found a handful that I can’t wait to try.

Great Lansing Food Bank gets help from “Big Give”

2 05 2008

Good story on ABC 3 last night about how the community came together to help the Greater Lansing Food Bank even more after Oprah’s Big Give donated $10,000 for milk.

One by one local sponnsors brought in their donations for the cause hoping to inspire others to do the same.

“That was the idea- pay it forward” said Sharon Krinock of the Greater Lansing Food Bank.  “You get one person on board, word gets out and other people want to join in. That’s exactly what happened- it was wonderful.”

The 22-thousand dollars raised will go to proivde families with much needed staples.

“This will go to milk money for our families and the numbers of families does grow in the summer time” said Krinock.

“For three weeks, our eight area stores had receptacles that people could come in and make donations of canned goods and items that were collected for the area pantry food bank” said Marthan Levandowski of L & L Food Centers.

That’s a lot of milk!
