St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center Food Pantry
Several local Catholic churches closed and merged, St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center became the combined food pantry service this area. Our food pantry provides dry goods, produce, and meat to those in need. Our Food Pantry program is made possible by the support of countless volunteers, the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan, and a unique partnership with McLaren Hospital. We are so grateful for our partnership with McLaren, who donates food to us that has been cooked but never served at their facility, which we use to serve the community on each of our food distribution days.
We serve everyone who is an eligible participant from neighborhoods located in Northwest Flint area. This includes men, women, children, and the elderly in the zip code areas 48504 and 48505.
To become an eligible participant you must meet the USDA poverty guidelines, set by the federal government. Participants receive groceries once a month, with the food pantry being open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10am – 2pm. Also on Tuesdays and Thursdays we serve a hot meal, all are welcome.
Food Pantry Support
Food for our pantry and meal program is supplied through monetary donations. Most of the food is purchased from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. A budget of $120,000 annually maintains this important part of St. Luke N.E.W. Life Center and the people it serves.
Presently we are looking for individuals and businesses of the community who will make a commitment of $3,000 per year, or $250 per month that will help support our food pantry.
