Shiawassee Hunger Network
The Shiawassee Hunger Network (SHN) is a collaboration of agencies dedicated to eliminating hunger and providing emergency services to those in need.
Hunger is not a choice!
How We Help
Since 2011, the Shiawassee Hunger Network (SHN) has provided help and funds to local food pantries. SHN is a County Wide collaboration with pantries in Owosso, Corunna, New Lothrop, Vernon, Durand and more. Food, basic needs items, (i.e. soaps, toilet paper, etc.) and baby items are distributed weekly to those in need. Each MONTH we serve an average of 1,500 people with enough food to make over 11,000 meals!

Volunteers & Donors Needed
You don’t have to be a pantry to join the SHN. We rely on groups and service clubs to volunteer and do fundraisers for our network of pantries. Together we can help feed Shiawassee County. Youth Groups, Women and Men’s Clubs, Service Organizations, Colleges, School Groups and others can help the SHN by volunteering at local Food Distributing Sites, Mobile Food Pantries, Fundraising events and more.
Can’t volunteer? Why not hold a fundraiser, food drive, or activity that will benefit all SHN Pantries? Call the Shiawassee Hunger Network to set up an appointment to go over the various ways you can help!
