We are a food pantry and serve everyone who lives in our area. We serve approximately 90 families each week. We love to hand out fresh produce and our neighbors love receiving it. Most of them don't otherwise buy it. Whatever is available, our neighbors would love. We also give out personal care products, non perishable food, dairy products and frozen meat.
We are open Monday, Wednesday & Friday from 9-12. Please call before you come at 616-300-5079. You can use the gray door at the back of the church by the dumpster. We are located in the basement of Trinity Reformed Church.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
