Food Pantries

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 the Michigan 2-1-1 website for a current list of food pantries near you.
