Michigan Harvest Gathering is an annual month-long project in October of the Food Bank Council of Michigan (FBCM), a statewide organization committed to alleviating hunger in Michigan. It gathers food and funds to help stock Michigan's food banks, which is then distributed throughout the state-wide food bank network. In addition to assisting with the distribution of shelf-stable items, the FBCM also coordinates multiple agricultural programs which support Michigan farmers, as well as brings nutritious, healthy produce into the emergency food system.
