Our community is facing a reality. An alarming reality—the reality that many people in our own community cannot afford basic necessities such as toiletries or groceries.

To help meet this need, Journeys Coffee House coordinated a food drive, providing a week’s worth of groceries to over 100 families in the Midland community. The initiative blossomed and has since hosted food giveaways, Family Fun Days, Christmas toy giveaways and Breakfast with Santa event. We even partnered with the Great Lakes Loons baseball team in 2011 to host a food giveaway. We ended up feeding 5,000 people that day.

This initiative is now known as Filling Midland’s Cup, which is an extension of Journeys Coffee House. Journeys is committed to building a better community and allocates 100% of its tips to Filling Midland’s Cup events.


To care for those in need in the Great Lakes Bay Region by providing necessities like food and toiletries to families in need by following the example of Christ.
