Bay City Based Michigan Sugar and the United Way of Bay County have partnered together to donate sugar to food banks in a five county area.
The annual Sugar Food Pantry enables regional food banks to pick up four pound bags of sugar for use by local families. The overall donation totals about 15,000 pounds to be distributed throughout Bay, Arenac, Tuscola, Saginaw and Midland counties. About 40 food banks will receive 90 bags each.
Community and government relations director of Michigan Sugar Ray VanDriessche says “giving back to local communities” across the region “is a core value” for the company. He says every farm family and employee of Michigan Sugar is proud to be a part of helping people and families in need.
The annual donation is timed to precede the holiday season, when sugar is used for holiday baking and celebrations.
