LANSING, Mich. — India Cultural Society (ICS) of the greater Lansing area has supported Greater Lansing Food Bank through their annual “Feed the Hungry” luncheon event since 1993. The luncheon is a long-standing tradition for the organization and its members. Every year during this event, ICS members not only provide the hot meals but also volunteer to serve the meals to people who are hungry – an example of their dedication to the community and our neighbors in need.

“ICS and the Indian Community are very proud, as well as fortunate, to be partners with GLFB in their commitment to feed our neighbors," said Bidhan Redey, one of the founding members of ICS's combined campaign committee since 1997. “We look forward to continuing this partnership for many years to come.”

Through their work since 1993, ICS has helped to provide over 1.1 million meals to people facing hunger in mid-Michigan. This year, ICS members came together to present GLFB with a donation of over $28,000 which will provide more than 84,000 meals to our neighbors in need throughout the seven counties that we serve.

“The continuous support that we’ve received from ICS over the years has allowed us to feed thousands of neighbors in our community,” said Michelle Lantz, GLFB CEO. “We want to thank ICS for the huge impact they have made and for being alongside us as we continue to fight hunger in mid-Michigan.”
