Governor Attends Opening of Model Food Pantry/Restaurant

Apr 21, 2017

This week, Governor Rick Snyder joined the Nottawaseppi Huron Band of the Potawatomi (an MLC client), owners of FireKeepers Casino Hotel, along with a large contingent of local elected officials to commemorate the grand opening of the Fire Hub restaurant and Kendall Street Pantry located in Battle Creek, MI.

The Fire Hub is a community reinvestment, with eighty percent of profits pooled to benefit local charities, while twenty percent will provide maintenance capital dollars.  The Kendall Street Pantry, located in the rear section of the building, will work in conjunction with the Food Bank of South Central Michigan.  Another major element of the project is the development of nearby tribal lands to farm and grow vegetables, with a goal of delivering a free salad bar to students in area communities.  The project included the redevelopment of a historic 1903 era Fire Station #4 in Battle Creek, MI.
