Nourishing Communities by

Our philosophy is simple -- many hands make light work, and each of us can make a difference by working together to create communities of caring to help those in need.

Donate Many Hands is an organization of like-minded individuals working together to make a difference.

A local, community focused 501(c)(3) non-profit organization established and run by driven and dedicated individuals working together with the common goal of helping families and young people dealing with HUNGER in Ingham County.
Every dollar you donate can provide up to three meals to a hungry child. One hundred percent of every dollar donated is spent on food distribution and food programs. We support our programs with your help!
Whether you are interested in collecting or sorting food, packing Backpacks or staffing a special event, Many Hands offers many opportunities for individuals, families, schools, corporate groups or other organizations to volunteers.

Welcome to Many Hands!
Founded in Williamston, MI in 2012, with a hope of bringing communities together to help those in need.  To lead by example, and pay the blessings in our lives forward.  Our basic philosophy is simple: many hands make light work, and each of us can make a difference, and together we can create a community of caring to help those in need.

After many years of consideration and planning, families within the Ingham County community made Many Hands possible.  Having a strong desire to lead by example, for their own children and seeing the need for help in our community, Many Hands was formed.  We want to excite and motivate others to give back and create a community of caring.  We aim to grow by involving individuals, churches, schools, business, civic organizations and service clubs.

Our focus will be ELIMINATING HUNGER among Elementary-age youth within our community.  Starting in the Fall of 2012, we will work with other local organizations to support their work fighting hunger and develop a Backpack / Weekend Survival Kit food program for communities currently and not yet involved, focusing in Ingham County.

Map the Meal Gap

Feeding America first published the Map the Meal Gap project in early 2011, with the generous support of the Howard G. Buffett Foundation and The Nielsen Company, to learn more about the face of hunger at the local level. In August, 2011, with the support of the ConAgra Foods Foundation, child food insecurity data was added to the project. The maps below reflect 2009 and 2010 data, and will be updated every year with new data.



Hunger Facts

In many ways, America is the land of plenty. But for 1 in 6 people in the United States, hunger is a reality. Many people believe that the problems associated with hunger are confined to small pockets of society, certain areas of the country, or certain neighborhoods, but the reality is much different.
