Who We Serve
Our Christian call to ‘serve the least of these’ is seen in the faces of the people who come to The Food Pantry for assistance. Families, the elderly, the unemployed, underemployed, singles, the poor…those on the margins of our communities, for whatever reasons.
Personal attention, courtesy and respect are part of every client interaction. Our goal is to make each visit to The Food Pantry pleasant, helpful and friendly. Above all, we want to meet our clients’ food needs and to do it in a way that makes each of them feel respected and valued as a child of God.
What we provide and require:
- Each client is given enough food for three meals for three days for everyone in the family. This includes protein items like chicken and eggs. Personal care items are also distributed, as available.
- Those who come to The Food Pantry must be residents of Saginaw County and be able to provide appropriate personal identification for each member of their household.
- Clients may come to The Food Pantry once every three months for assistance.
Free nutrition classes
In partnership with MSU Home Extension Services, The Food Pantry occasionally offers free, on-site, nutrition classes for Pantry clients where they learn about good nutrition, healthy eating, cooking and more.
