Immanuel Lutheran’s Food Pantry

Immanuel Lutheran’s Food Pantry is open every Saturday from 9:15 to 11:30 a.m. Volunteers are asked to arrive by 8:45am. The doors close at 11:30 a.m. but if you are in the church at that time, you will still be able to get food! Be aware that the pantry averages about 260 clients each week!

The pantry works very hard to provide a balanced variety of food items. Each week they provide choices in these categories – Bakery, Meat, Grocery Items, Canned Vegetables, Fruits, Breakfast Items and a variety of snacks.

All clients are required to show ID’s and fill out a form required by the Food Bank of South Central Michigan (FBSCM). There is no required proof of need to receive items.

If you plan on volunteering, please reach out to the church office so we can get a headcount of who to expect.
