Family Life Center Food Pantry for Wexford & Missaukee Residents:
Family Life Center food pantry is still open to provide food for those in need.

The pantry is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11:30am to 2:30 pm and is located at Living Light Christian Church located at 7700 W Blue Road between Cadillac and Lake City. All items received are free and no documentation is necessary.

First Presbyterian Church of Cadillac- Free Little Pantry                                                                    The pantry is not meant to be a long term fix, or to compete with our local food banks. But if someone needs a quick bite to eat, or something for their family, it is here for your use. The idea behind the pantry is simple: Take what you need, leave what you can. If you would like to help keep our pantry stocked, all items must be factory sealed, and not expired. We are not accepting cans or glass jars until the weather warms up.
