We are open on the first four Tuesdays of the month 1:30-3:30 p.m. in the Pantry/Nursery Room at the church.

(during winter months, we close when Alma Public Schools are closed due to bad weather.)

Food Pantry is Available!

  • Food Pantry is available to residents of Alma, Riverdale, Elwell or Elm Hall.
  • Client should bring picture ID as well as the names and birthdates for all household members.
  • Each client may come only once every other month.

Food Donations:

    Keeping in mind healthful eating, we encourage you to be “label readers,” looking for low sodium and sugar content. If you see bagged potatoes, onions or fresh produce (carrots, apples) that will keep at least two weeks, we’d appreciate those donations in small quantities, one to three pound bags. Remember to check that the package is not opened or past the expiration date! Thanks! Boxed potatoes, canned peaches and pineapples, egg noodles, spaghetti, pasta and noodle side dishes, Manwich, & canned salmon, and toilet paper, dish soap and liquid laundry detergent.

Monetary donations:

    Monetary donations to the Food Pantry are always welcome and make it possible for us to obtain food cheaply through the Greater Lansing Food Bank.

Thank you:

    Thank you for all your gifts to our Pantry. God bless your generosity!
