Donate food

To donate food items, bring to the pantry on Mondays from 1:30-2:30 p.m. or Tuesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Our COVID procedures don’t allow entry into the pantry for anyone other than current volunteers, so please just let us know you’re there and we’ll come out to get the items, or leave items outside next to the door. If nobody is there, a volunteer will be there shortly during those times. Items should not be past their “best by” dates, and we don’t accept candy or soda and other sweetened drinks.  Suggested items are listed below. For questions, please call 231-497-8677. And Thank You!!

St. Matthew’s Catholic Church in Boyne City is also a drop-off site for non-perishable items only. The church is open from 7 a.m. until 4 p.m., Monday through Friday. Please use the doors under the canopy and the door opposite. The drop-off box is at the back of the church in the vestibule by the water fountain. The church is located at 1303 Boyne Avenue.
