The Pantry relies heavily on food (In-Kind) donations from the community.
Food comes to the Pantry through many sources. Generous donations come from across the community—school, church and business food drives, manufacturers, stores, trucking companies, the state penitentiary, hunters, garden surpluses, farmer’s fields, local restaurants, the hospital and more.
The Pantry’s partnership with the South Michigan Food Bank in Battle Creek allows us to purchase fresh foods and staples at a greatly reduced price throughout the year. All food received is, in turn distributed to households.
Produce and packaged foods can be dropped off at the Pantry on Mondays, 10-12, and Tuesdays, 8:30-2:00.
WHAT DO WE NEED THIS MONTH??
To prepare and and stock up for our holiday distribution, we are collecting:
Canned corn and beans
Cream of mushroom soup
Baked beans and noodles
Pie filling and crust mix
Each year Meijer has a SIMPLY GIVE program.
It gives people the opportunity to SIMPLY GIVE to the Branch Area Food Pantry.
Look for displays at the checkout lanes and SIMPLY GIVE.
Thank you Meijer and everyone.
Together we FEED THE HUNGRY
