    As we all know, Hold on to Hope is an extension of Jacob Prusakiewicz’s company, Live Love Michigan. This month, Hold on to Hope is fighting hunger by designing shirts to benefit Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank. Since December, Hold on to Hope has raised more than $3,000 for four nonprofit organizations based in Michigan.

    Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank services 40 Michigan counties through more than 1,200 local food pantries and other agencies that support hunger relief. The process of servicing these counties includes reclaiming edible surplus food from farmers, manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank then stores, processes, and distributes the food to those who need it most.

    In 2013, Feeding America West Michigan set an all-time record for distributing 25.6 million pounds of food to areas in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula. 50 percent of the sale of each t-shirt will be returned to Feeding America West Michigan Food Bank. The sale of each shirt will provide approximately 50 people suffering from food insecurity with meals. 50 meals per shirt. Personally, I find this to be a mind-blowing figure and am certain many of us can play a significant role in getting that number as high as it can possibly be. It is astounding that the mere purchase of one shirt can provide up to 50 meals.
