LANSING, Mich. — Employees from Bayer U.S. Crop Science recommended Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB) to receive a $5,000 grant from Bayer Fund. Funds from the grant will be used for food purchasing.

“At Greater Lansing Food bank, with just one dollar we can provide three meals, so these funds will go a really long way and will make a huge impact in our community”, said Kelly Miller, GLFB Development & Major Gifts Officer. “We want to thank Bayer Fund for this grant and supporting us in our mission to alleviate hunger one meal at a time.”

“Food is such a basic need that people in our community do not have access to, and the work that Greater Lansing Food Bank does in order to feed people is amazing”, said Greg Scanlan, Bayer U.S. Crop Science Site Lead of Mason, MI. “We’re proud to support Greater Lansing Food Bank with this Bayer Fund grant.”

In 2019, Bayer Fund awarded more than $8.4 million through this program to nonprofit organizations in rural communities to help address essential needs in Food & Nutrition, STEM Education, and Community Development. Nonprofit organizations across the U.S. have received funding in more than 1,300 counties across 43 states.
