Are you able to help?

We are looking for individuals to provide items for our neighbors in need. Donations of non-perishable food items and personal care products are always welcome and appreciated. No gift is too small. Food donations can be dropped off on pantry days 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Please come to the back of the church to the gray door in the alleyway and ring the doorbell. 

If you would like to donate financially, you can mail a check to Northwest Food Pantry, 1224 Davis, NW Grand Rapids, MI  49504 or click on our donate button.

If you would love to donate and these times do not work for you, please email Waverly at and I can meet you at the food pantry or leave a message at 616-300-5079.
