Food Pantry

At Fenton UMC, we love and provide for our community through our food pantry.  The food pantry has expanded over the last few years from a small closet to a larger room and provides everything from boxes of pasta and cans of tuna to frozen meat, toothpaste, and shampoo.  We help families and individuals who have found themselves food insecure for whatever reason.  Food insecurity is defined as not knowing where your next meal is coming from.  It may also mean you purchase food that is cheaper, but provides less nutrition for you and your children.  Food insecurity is a problem not limited to Detroit or Flint, but also happens right here in our community.  Our food pantry eases the burden on individuals and families; we discreetly do what we can to insure their pantries are full of healthy food.

If you are in need of assistance, please contact Love INC at 810-235-4990.  Love In the Name of Christ (Love INC) is the agency through which we work to identify those in need.  You can also contact the church office with further questions.

If you have been blessed with resources, please consider helping out our food pantry.  Donations are always accepted through the church office in the form of cash donations, dry boxed foods, canned foods, toiletries, and hygiene items.  If you would like to be more active in the ministry, please contact Mary Lynn and Denny Colwell at 810-750-3454

If you have been blessed with time, please consider volunteering with our church group at the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.  Not only does this help provide food to those in need throughout eastern Michigan, but volunteer time also gives us credit to help stock the church food pantry.  If you would like to join our volunteer team, please contact Cindy Collins at 810-694-1749

We also provide a special Thanksgiving basket to over 100 families every fall.  If you would like to help with collecting, packing, or distributing Thanksgiving baskets, please contact Mary Lynn and Denny Colwell at 810-750-3454
