Free Food Pantry
In conjunction with the Cadillac Rotary Club, Feeding America, and the many generous local donors, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation administers the Free Food Pantry.
This Free Food Pantry takes place twice per month. Trucks of food, donated by Feeding America, are brought to our area at a cost of $825 per truck. The funds are generously donated by area businesses and citizens, and the fee covers the cost of the truck, gas, and driver, to bring the donated food to Cadillac. Each truck carries enough food to supply up to 200 families with up to 50 lbs of fresh foods.
The Food is available twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Thursdays at 2pm at 908 6th Street in Cadillac. Volunteers from the sponsoring business or family, the Cadillac Area Community Foundation, the Cadillac Rotary Club, and other generous citizens, donate their time to do everything from unloading the trucks, signing in recipients, breaking down bulk foods, helping people get the food to their cars, and cleaning up afterward.
This is truly a collaborative community event that highlights how we all help each other.
