Food and Hope

  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.


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  was a challenging year for the Pantry and we have no reason to doubt that the trend will continue in 2024       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

How can you help??

The Branch Area Food Pantry is happy to partner with Meijer to support local families through its #MeijerSimplyGive hunger relief program. Help your neighbors by purchasing a MeijerSimplyGive donation card at the Coldwater Meijer’s                      from March 31-June 29.
