Food Partners: A Win-Win Relationship

Oct 3, 2018 11:52:16 AM

Food service partners provide the bulk of the ingredients for the meals served at the Union Gospel Mission, which added up to more than 310,000 in 2017. But those meals are still only a part of how UGM helps feed the hungry thanks to those partnerships.

UGM’s refrigerated truck driver goes out five days a week to pick up food donations from grocery stores, restaurants and distributors. Those foods end up in UGM’s six kitchens (four shelters, Student Impact Center and UGM Camp) as well as in partnering churches, food pantries and other organizations that work to feed the hungry in our region.
