Welcome to the Branch Area Food Pantry
Clients are assigned one Tuesday/month, 1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th for pickup. Clients must bring their blue Pantry card to the Pantry to receive food. New clients who are not registered will receive food, but MUST bring proof of residency in Branch County and complete an application on arrival.
Note: Holiday Boxes will be distributed on Nov. 18, 10-2. Recipients must pre-register by coming to the Pantry. Those who do not have a Distribution card will wait until all other registered clients have gone through.
Who Are We?
The Branch Area Food Pantry, an all volunteer organization, serves over 170 families every Tuesday, over 800 families each month. We rely on and value the support of our generous community
THANK YOU! The Pantry is truly blessed.
How can we thank you??
2023 has been a challenging year for the Pantry. The numbers speak for themselves:
Over 100 new clients registered each month, and 200 clients served weekly.
50% of clients over 60 years of age or below 19
180,000 + pounds (90+ tons) of donated “in-kind” food
68 weekly senior boxes distributed to elderly clients at home
Almost 5,000 hours of hard work provided by our volunteers
We are grateful to so many donors....
The kindness of the community keeps the Pantry alive. With dozens of local businesses, churches, financial institutions and hundreds of generous citizens, there is no way to provide individual acknowledgement for each donation. Know that we appreciate your contribution and promise to use it to continue with our mission of providing food and hope to our community.
