Food banks, soup kitchens and food pantries in Pleasant Lake IN

Pleasant Lake United Methodist Church Food Bank
Pleasant Lake, IN 46779
Details: Distribution day is every Thursday from 11:30-2:00. People begin to line up at 10:30 and doors open at 11:00. The farm wagon arrives between 11:00 and 11:30 and distribution begins at 11:30. The food bank is a ministry of the church and is supported by several other churches and local programs. We purchase food from the Community Harvest Food Bank for only $.19 per pound so our donations are able to stretch a long way. Besides the food that is purchased, we also receive a farm wagon that comes to the food bank the day that we are open that brings fresh fruits and vegetables, bakery products and a variety of dairy products. Along with the farm wagon, we also receive commodities which are government subsidies which range from canned fruits and vegetables to frozen meats. Clients are eligible for all of these products that are available on our distribution day. Clients need to bring a piece of mail with their current address on it. We prefer that the clients are from Steuben County but we do not turn anyone away. We offer other services than just food. We have information for other ministries, programs, as well as offer clothing. We are connected with another church ministry with a large clothing ministry that gives us clothes to put out for clients to browse through as well as a form that they can fill out if there are some specific needs or sizes that are not offered. Other items such as bedding, towels and household items are available too.
