If you need food, we are here to help! You don’t need to call ahead or make an appointment. Just come to the pantry when we are open. (See our Contact page for hours and location.) We will do our best to serve you quickly and cheerfully!
As with food pantries everywhere, clients of Helping Hands are subject to residency requirements. We serve people with Charlotte, Vermontville, Sunfield, and Olivet addresses. People from other areas are generally given a one-time food order for their household and referred to a pantry that serves their community for any future assistance. It is the policy of all mid-Michigan food pantries that clients frequent only one food pantry each month. In addition, clients are also restricted by low-income guidelines and required to sign a statement attesting to their eligibility and accuracy of personal information given.
Please bring a photo ID with you. If your ID does not show your current address, bring a piece of mail or other document that shows where you live.
