Location at Gregg Fellowship Center in addition to financial assistance. The Beaver Island Food Pantry provides food items to individuals and families in need year-round “because we are a family.”
Housed at the Gregg Fellowship Center of the Beaver Island Christian Church, this community pantry benefits young and old alike. Fall and winter are the times of greatest need.
If you would like to donate pantry items, these non-perishable items are always needed: canned fruits and vegetables, canned beans, soups, tuna, canned chicken, canned spaghetti and ravioli, pasta sauce. We also need ramen, boxed macaroni and cheese, boxed potatoes and taco or burrito ingredients. Paper towels and toilet paper are also distributed at the pantry.
If you are leaving the island after a stay, donations of unopened non-perishable food of any kind are also welcome. Collection points for donations include the vestibule of the Beaver Island Christian Church, the Beaver Island Community Center, the Beaver Island Rural Health Center, Fresh Air Aviation, Holy Cross Church and Island Airways.
Monetary donations are tax-deductible. Checks may be made out to the Beaver Island Christian Church. Please write Food Pantry on the memo line. the address is PO Box 21, Beaver Island, MI 49782.
