On Thursday, Oct. 20 at 1 p.m., the Lorenzo Cultural Center will host an informative presentation for the community about the Macomb Food Program Pantry Network as part of its Michigan Harvest program series. In recent months, the Pantry Network System has been in high demand due to unemployment and underemployment throughout the county.
Program coordinators from the Macomb County Community Services Agency will present to the public comprehensive details about the program, which operates more than 55 food pantries that provided more than 151,000 individuals with emergency food supplies in 2010. Information will include who the program can benefit, an outline of how an individual can sign up for those benefits and other useful information for Macomb county residents looking for emergency assistance based upon need.
This presentation is a part of the Lorenzo Center’s Michigan Harvest program series which celebrates Michigan’s agricultural heritage, diverse ethnic cuisine and special traditions that have impacted the states history and development. The presentation is free, but advance registration is required and made by calling 586.445.7348 or visiting www.LorenzoCulturalCenter.com.
The Lorenzo Cultural Center is located at Hall and Garfield roads on Macomb Community College’s Center Campus in Clinton Township.
