It is our vision to allocate resources to combat the deficit of proper nutrition which impacts the quality of education that our youth receive. Through Mission Nutrition we will be giving away food to the families in the community to increase access to healthy foods and fight hunger.
Mission Nutrition was first organized in collaboration with Lionel Banks and Gleaners Food Bank as a one-time event in celebration of Lionel’s 25th birthday and an opportunity to fight hunger in the community. The event served over 140 families and many asked when the next giveaway would be. This inspired a merge between BUILDING Futures and Detroit Premier Academy, who both have partnership with Gleaners Food Bank to continue the event on a monthly basis.
