Thanks for support

We at Benzie Food Partners would like to thank the Benzie County community, and others, for their wonderful support of our project. As we begin our 17th year we would like to express our gratitude to all who have supported us over the years. We cannot do what we do without this support, no matter the form of giving.

We are not as old or as large a program as some in our area, but in 2013 the Food Partners were there for an accumulative total of 2,088 families, 5,898 Benzie County residents, of which 1,281 were seniors, 90,099 pounds were distributed. We see new families each month due to the difficult economic times impacting everyone in some way.

BFP is open the first and third Thursday monthly or for emergency assistance. We are located at the southeast corner of Henry and Main Street in Honor, PO Box 598, Honor, MI, 49640. For information, we can be reached at (231) 325-2936 or (231) 882-5234. We are a totally volunteer managed 501-(c) 3 project.

Again, we say “thank you” to the Benzie County community and others — whether you’re here full-time or part-time, we sincerely appreciate each of you.

Jeffie M. Lynch-Jones

Honor

The writer is Secretary/Treasurer of Benzie Food Partners.
