Who We Are
The Livingston Hunger Council is a collaborative body made up of a cross-section of the community dedicated to ending hunger in Livingston County. The Council is made up of government agencies, non-profits, local businesses and private citizens who have committed to making our community a place where everyone has access to the nutritious food they need, when they need it.
As a basic human right, all people should be able to find the food they need. Moving toward a future where everyone enjoys that right is a realistic, affordable and morally compelling goal for Michigan. In Livingston County there are some 10,000 people who live in poverty and almost 24,000 people can be described as being “food insecure.” Food insecurity means an individual does not have the resources to eat all of the meals necessary to meet their nutritional needs. Together, the Livingston Hunger Council works to make Livingston County a food-secure community.
