COMSTOCK PARK, Mich., November 29, 2023 — Greenville Area Community Foundation’s grant is helping provide 300,000 meals’ worth of food to neighbors in need through Feeding America West Michigan’s Mobile Food Pantry program in Montcalm County this year.

Mobile Food Pantries bring fresh groceries directly into communities with a high need for food support. They are an effective avenue for distributing fresh, perishable food to those who need it. To find a nearby Mobile Food Pantry, including those in Montcalm County, visit FeedWM.org/mobile-pantry-schedule.

Mobile Food Pantries occur on a consistent basis and anyone in need of food assistance can show up to receive a variety of food items—such as fresh produce, dairy, grains and protein—at no cost.

“This support for neighbors in need in Montcalm County will make such a significant impact, especially with high prices affecting so many people right now,” said Feeding America West Michigan’s President and CEO Ken Estelle. “Greenville Area Community Foundation is making a big difference by joining us as we work together to end hunger.”
