Serving the Greater Lansing Area

Weekday Catering

Est. 2017

Building Blocks of Michigan was created from the desire to provide Greater Lansing with a "feel good" food service.  We believe in the  straight-forward recipe that quality ingredients + timely service + a spirit of sharing will result in success.  10%* of every purchase will benefit the Greater Lansing Food Bank, our local chapter of "Feeding America".  Food simply tastes better when everyone has enough to eat.

(*up to a maximum of $500 per month)

Winter Wonderland!

Happy Holidays, Everyone!

We want to humbly thank everyone that took a chance on us this first year.  We sincerely appreciate your support and your encouragement.  We have amazing clients and have met so many thoughtful people through our catering operation.  In October, we moved from renting a commercial kitchen on an hourly basis to having our own dedicated space.  It has been wonderful, and, because of this, we are now able to participate in a few other food ventures!

This Fall, we joined the Allen Neighborhood Center's Wednesday Farmers Market.  So, please stop in and visit us for delicious hot sandwiches, soup & fresh salads.  Wednesdays from 3:00 to 6:30 on Lansing's East Side.

In addition, beginning in January 2018, we will be starting a new meal service.  Geared towards seniors, college students, or simply busy people, these will be wholesome, refrigerator ready meals.  Entrees that can easily be warmed in the oven, microwave ready soups, and delicious fresh salads, we want to put nutritious, delicious food within reach.  Interested?  Check out the "Meal Service" tab to get started.

Warmest Regards,

Roshan & Jason Yannotti
