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??
Clients are always thrilled to receive household items that they may not be able to purchase on their own including: toothpaste and toothbrushes, soaps- shampoo, body soap, laundry detergent, dish soap, feminine personal items. In addition, we are often looking for larger quantities of peanut butter, baked beans, one dish meals like spaghetti-o’s. THANK YOU!!
The next 2023 Meijer SIMPLY GIVE Campaign will run for a total of 13 weeks, from Sunday, October 1, 2023 through Saturday, December 30, 2023.
Our partnering store is the Meijers on E. Chicago Rd. Coldwater.
This program has generated more than $84 million dollars in food distribution since November 2008, and our Food Pantry receives thousands of dollars each year from our local Meijer.
Thank you Meijer and everyone.
Together we FEED THE HUNGRY
