The annual University of Michigan-Flint Holiday Food Giveaway that takes place the week of Thanksgiving began in 2012. Former staff member Jessie Hurse organized the giveaway in collaboration with Block Club as a way to pay tribute to his mother Lula and her spirit of generosity. Now in its sixth year, the giveaway continues to be a source of goodwill among all involved. This year the food giveaway will take place on Saturday, November 18th and we are gearing up for the logistics of processing four semi-trucks of food from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan into food boxes for 400 families. These four hundred families represent nearly 1,500 people served. Volunteers are needed to continue this event into its 6th year!! This year we have volunteer shifts on Friday & Saturday!!
