Food Pantries

Provide emergency food packages for people who do not have enough money to buy food. They are intended to fill in a gap as an emergency program and do not provide people with food on a continuous basis. Some pantries have a limit to how often you can get groceries. The food packages vary from one pantry to another, but some offer vegetables, frozen meat, canned goods, cereal, pasta and other grocery staples. Infant formula, diapers and baby food are available at certain locations, so you should mention if you need these items when you call for a referral. 

Please visit mi211.org  for current list of Food Pantries near you. 

 

God's Breadbasket- Dinner's on us 

The Dinner's On Us! service is the most visible aspect of God's Breadbasket. They host an all inclusive dinner Tuesday through Friday 6pm to 7pm. There are no questions asked, and no one who is respectful and polite will be refused a nutritious meal and the company of gracious hosts who provide the meals. This service is provided with the intent of providing nourishment to those who have suddenly found themselves in a tough spot, or how may need assistance on a regular basis. They also provide food through their pantries that are available to those who need extra food throughout the week.
