As all of us know and the National Weather Service has confirmed, Michigan has had one of the coldest and snowiest winters in recorded history. These winter weather conditions have exacerbated the challenges facing needy people and families in our community.
In fact, with the economic conditions in our area, the extreme weather conditions this winter, and the challenges of cuts to unemployment benefits to many, the need for food is growing.
To help meet this growing need for food and manifest its mission of sharing God’s love for one another, knowing Christ, and serving the world, St. Philip Lutheran Church in Trenton runs a weekly food pantry. This food pantry is unique in that it offers client choice, where clients can choose the kinds of food desired.
