Volunteers from Vibe Credit Union ($1.2 billion, Novi, Mich.) and other organizations showcase the impact of a recent food distribution initiative. On March 20, Vibe partnered with local organizations Metro Food Rescue, Zelphia's Community Kitchen and the NOAH Project to provide meals for people facing food insecurity in the Metro Detroit area. Thirty Vibe employee volunteers teamed up with Metro Food Rescue to create 1,000 soup kits and 300 bagged lunches for distribution to those in need. In addition to their volunteer work, Vibe donated $20,000 to Metro Food Rescue to support its mission of reducing food waste and addressing food insecurity in the community. Vibe's donation will provide 180,000 meals for people and families in Metro Detroit. The bagged lunches were distributed on March 21 by five Vibe employee volunteers in cooperation with the NOAH Project. Soup kits were donated to Zelphia's Community Kitchen and will provide 4,000 meals to those in need.
