ST. JOHNS, MI – Members of the Clinton County Open Food Distribution Team were recently recognized as the Sparrow Clinton Hospital Volunteers of the Year for their outstanding community service.
The food bank opened its doors in 2002, thanks to support from the Sparrow Clinton Hospital Foundation and the Greater Lansing Food Bank. The group now distributes food on the second Thursday of each month from the Bath Township Hall, assisting an average of 90 families per month. In 2016, members distributed 83,760 pounds of food to friends and neighbors in need.
