The Pantry relies heavily on food (In-Kind) donations from the community.
Food comes to the Pantry through many sources. In 2019, the Pantry received and distributed one-quarter of a million pounds of donated food over the course of the year. Generous donations come from across the community—school, church and business food drives, manufacturers, stores, 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.
NOTE: Due to the Corona Virus threat, we are not currently accepting food. plastic bags or egg cartons. Thank you for your support in the past, we will let donors know when these restrictions are lifted.
