Vibe Credit Union Joins Metro Food Rescue to Provide 180K Meals
On March 20, Vibe Credit Union partnered with Metro Food Rescue, Zelphia’s Community Kitchen, and the NOAH Project to provide meals for people facing food insecurity in Metro Detroit. 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. Metro Food Rescue has been a lifeline for many communities by rescuing surplus food and redistributing it to those in need.
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. This collaboration between Vibe Credit Union, Metro Food Rescue, Zelphia’s Community Kitchen and the NOAH Project is a powerful example of what can be achieved when local organizations come together to address essential community needs.
"Individually, we can each make a difference in our community, but when we work together, we can make an immense impact. The Vibe Credit Union leadership team is so proud of our Vibe volunteers who are committed to making our community a more equitable place to live,” said CEO Chaz Rzewnicki.
The Vibe team would like to express their gratitude to all the volunteers who participated in the event and Metro Food Rescue for their continued dedication to support people in need. The collaboration between these organizations is a testament to the power of community involvement and the positive impact of working together towards a common goal.
