Eat Well

Eating well is everything. We are here to help you bring delicious healthy meals to your table.

Get Food

Michigan Food Pantries have nourishing food, and they are open to everyone. There are about 800 food pantries, soup kitchens, and places around the state ready to help. The following listings will help you find food in your area.

FoodPantries.org (links to new window) provides listings of pantries, as well as food closets, soup kitchens, congregate meal locations, food boxes, vouchers, etc.

FreeFood.org (links to new window) is about helping people connect with food pantries, and food coupon resources, in their communities.

HSD Food Resources (links to new window) is a directory of resources to help the needy across America, with a special focus for those who are living in emergency shelters, transitional housing or are experiencing homelessness.

Note: Food banks do not directly serve people in need, they supply food to food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, etc.
