GB FISH Continues Free Food Distribution in 2019-20

GB FISH continues to help limit food waste at GBCS and help the GB community by distributing excess frozen foods from the school dining services. They also add items from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan (FBEM) such as dairy, bread, and produce as available.

Nearly 18.5 tones of food were handed out in the 2018-19 school year to over 2000 participants. More than 1 in 3 students in Grand Blanc participate in the Free/Reduced Lunch Program. 

FISH also maintains a food pantry at Hill Funeral Home. Each food call provides fresh milk, bread, eggs, fruit and produce, in addition to other purchases from the FBEM and donations to FISH. Residents in the Grand Blanc School District are eligible to receive from the pantry up to 3 times per year by calling 810.695.1880.
