A Message From Neema Baddam

My name is Neema, and I am a freshman in high school. To aid those in need during the COVID-19 outbreak, I have started a fundraising campaign for the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in the hopes of raising $5,000. If you are able to, I am asking you to donate what you can to this cause. Any amount helps as each dollar equates to six meals provided. In other words, if this campaign is successful, we can give 30,000 meals to those in need.
Not only does COVID-19 affect the global community; the novel coronavirus has an astronomical impact on local communities. Specifically, food banks, pantries, churches, and more places that provide food for the underprivileged have been forced to close as a part of the social distancing effort. In addition, due to the closing of all K-12 schools in Michigan, millions of children who rely on schools for up to two meals a day have lost access to that food.
Please give what you can so that we can maximize the assistance we offer our neighbors in need during this time of urgency.
​Finally, please stay safe and healthy during these pressing times.

About This Campaign

The Food Bank of Eastern Michigan is ramping up our efforts in response to the COVID-19 emergency. The nature of this emergency is unpredictable, but what we do know is that many of our partners, including schools, churches, nonprofits, healthcare facilities are facing closures, limited hours, staffing shortages, or other operational disruptions that present barriers to getting food to people in need.  We are in constant contact with churches, schools, soup kitchens, and other partners to asses what community needs are and how the Food Bank can help fill gaps in services.

With mass closures at schools and businesses, many families in our service area are facing increased and potentially prolonged uncertainty. Supporting the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan helps us continue to be a resource and provide additional services to help alleviate these new pressures on families. 

Please consider creating a fundraising page and sharing it with your social networks. We need your help!
Just click "Participate" to create your own fundraising page.  


We pride ourselves on being a stabilizing force for families and partners in our community. Part of our ability to be flexible and adapt our operations to best serve the community in times of emergency relies on support through monetary donations. Unrestricted donations allow us to procure food, safely store it, pay for transportation and mobile food distribution, and to offset other short-term increases in operational costs.
