How We Serve
The Redeemer Food Pantry is a year-round outreach that provides food and other items to families referred through local human services organizations. Sometimes unexpected situations happen. When they do, the “Pantry” provides a little extra help to stretch the budget. Paper products, cleaning supplies, baby and personal care items, and non-perishable food products are collected through community food drives and from member donations. These contributions and targeted purchases help to keep the Redeemer Food Pantry filled with necessary product items.
The Redeemer Food Pantry is open every Tuesday from 10:00am – 2:00pm and 5:30 – 7:00pm. Under our grant guidelines you must live in Clinton county and are allowed to visit our pantry only once every 30 days. A referral is required and can be received through the following agencies: Department of Human Services 989-224-5500 or Christian Services 517-394-5411.
Over the years of operation, the Redeemer congregation has generously provided the majority of the financial and in-kind support needed; supplemented by donations from the DeWitt community. Financial support is also provided by a grant through Greater Lansing Food Bank, where we shop the warehouse and purchase USDA food. We also receive support through the Meijer Simply Give Program.
If DeWitt Public Schools are closed on a Tuesday due to inclement weather – the Redeemer Food Pantry will also be closed.
