Monday, the Michigan Masons Charitable Foundation presented the Food Bank with a 20-thousand dollar grant.
The grant comes from the foundations B.E.S.T Grand Program that aims to build, enrich, strengthen and transform Michigan communities.
The Food Bank says the money will help them provide fresh fruits and produce to families all over Easter Michigan.

It's just something that needs to be done, it's obviously to survive people need food and children need good nutrition and it's just something that really appealed to us."
