Corn Marketing Program of Michigan Donates Bags, Takeout Containers and Cutlery to Greater Lansing Food Bank

LANSING – The Corn Marketing Program of Michigan (CMPM) today donated bags, takeout containers, and disposable cutlery and tableware to the Greater Lansing Food Bank (GLFB). The materials will be used by GLFB to support kitchens that provide take-out style food and agencies that pair them with food boxes for families.

“Michigan’s corn farmers are passionate about feeding people, and their day-to-day work is ultimately about making sure Michiganders have access to food,” said Claire White, outreach manager at CMPM. “It made sense to support Greater Lansing Food Bank and we’re proud to be able to assist in making sure more families in our community have access to food during this time.”

Many of the items donated by CMPM are made from biodegradable corn plastic, which can be composted after use.
