One Good Thing: SpartanNash & Miller Poultry chicken donation

They gave away thousands of pounds of poultry.

WYOMING, Michigan — Two local employers made a big food donation a few weeks ago.

This is a picture of members of SpartanNash and Miller Poultry making a chicken donation at the Metro Family Fare in Wyoming.  It's one of two donations totaling 16,600 pounds of chicken given to food banks around the state, including here on the West Side.

Locally, the food went to "Access of West Michigan," which then spread the donations to pantries and ministries all over. SpartanNash and Miller Poultry have been doing December chicken donations since 2008. They've given away more than 125,000 pounds of poultry in that time.

They're helping people and families eat. Few things are more important.  SpartanNash and Miller Poultry get today's One Good Thing.
