Food Pantry


Who We are

The mission of the Otsego County Food Pantry is to distribute emergency food to people who live or work in Otsego County.  The distribution will be done through charitable contributions of non perishable food and/or funding from churches. organizations or individuals.

In 1989, through the cooperative effort of the Ministerial Association and other concerned organizations, the Pantry became governed by a Board of Directors, comprised of representatives from participating churches and organizations.  In April of 1991, the Food Pantry became a Michigan non-profit corporation (#38-3374066).  We are 100% volunteers, with no paid staff.

 


Who Do We Serve?

Many persons in our community face a constant struggle to provide food for their families. Others occasionally need help when faced with unexpected expenses, illness or loss of income.  People sometimes have to make decisions between food, heat and medications.  For countless reasons, we feed people.
