Project Description

From what we get, we can make a living; what we give, however, makes a life.” – Arthur Ashe

As the holiday season approaches, please remember that if you don’t have the treasure – you may have the time and talent and that is just as important. Tune in at 9 pm tonight to hear from two gentlemen who are using their treasure to help create a food secure state.

Tom Celani and Bill Schuette. Tom is a community philanthropist, dedicated to addressing the needs of youth and fighting hunger. Tom and his wife Vicki created ‘Hunger Free in the D’ through the Celani Family Foundation – the event directly benefits Gleaners Community Food Bank and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen.

Bill and Cynthia Schuette are the founders of the Michigan Harvest Gathering – the food and funds campaign that helps our hungry neighbors. As we enter our 29th year of MHG, Bill and Cynthia have created the opportunity to elevate the issue and challenge of food insecurity from our kids to our senior citizens and all of the working families in between.

Be sure to get caught up on the innovative and inspiring conversation by listening to past episodes or on Newstalk 760 AM WJR Radio. You can also join the movement for a Food Secure Michigan by filling out our simple form at foodfirstmi.org/join-the-movement.
