Community food pantry still going strong

The Cedar Springs Community Food Pantry, established in 1985, is still going strong thanks to the generous support of volunteers, local businesses, local churches, community organizations like Cedar Springs Women’s Club and Cedar Springs Rod and Gun Club, and many community members who donate money and food. The U.S. Postal Service in Cedar Springs and the local Boy Scouts also help with food drives.  Last year, 24 volunteers worked an estimated 1,627 hours and served 863 families, including 1,731 adults and 1,075 children. Over $16,000 was spent to purchase food and personal products.

The food pantry is located in Cedar Springs United Methodist Church, 140 S. Main, and is open Monday through Friday from 9:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m.  Clients are referred to the pantry through North Kent Service Center and ACSET.  Donations of money, canned food or boxed food items are always welcome!
