Food Pantries

provide emergency food packages for people who do not have enough money to buy food. They are intended to fill in a gap as an emergency program and do not provide people with food on a continuous basis. Some pantries have a limit to how often you can get groceries. The food packages vary from one pantry to another, but some offer vegetables, frozen meat, canned goods, cereal, pasta and other grocery staples. Infant formula, diapers and baby food are available at certain locations, so you should mention if you need these items when you call for a referral. 

Please visit or call ahead to make sure this list is current. Days and times could have changed since this list was last updated. Food PANTRY INFO UPDATED Feb 2016.pdf

Veggie Mobile

The Veggie Mobile is made possible through a United States Department of Agriculture grant awarded to ProMedica Bixby Hospital in partnership with Lenawee Health Network (LHN).

Founded in 2011, LHN is a collaborative of community organizations dedicated to improving the health and well-being of Lenawee County. Together, members of LHN are committed to assessing the health needs of the community; staying abreast of community, social and political climates; enhancing media attention and public recognition of health priorities and issues; being good stewards of community resources by working together to avoid the duplication of services; and developing strategies to identify and address the needs of socially isolated members of the community.

Key initiatives include: providing access to healthy foods; promoting physical fitness; preventing prescription drug abuse; preventing bullying and suicide amongst youth; and improving access to health care.  To find out more information, please visit their website.
