God’s Kitchen Food & Pantry Programs

DSC_0910.jpg

Catholic Charities West Michigan’s food and pantry programs are dedicated to addressing the topic of ‘feeding the hungry.’

This topic has been the subject of much debate and conversation throughout the history of this community and, on a larger scale, the entire country. How do we feed hungry people? What should we feed them? Where does the food come from?

These questions have been allowed to define the issue of food insecurity. We are committed to meeting these questions head on and believe it is time for the conversation to change.

It is time to change the way we talk about “feeding the hungry.” The food and pantry programs of Catholic Charities West Michigan exceed the expectations of the traditional definition of what a “soup kitchen” is or does.

Our programs continually evolve and expand to meet the ever-changing needs of the communities we serve. The chefs and staff at God’s Kitchen are more than just the people who make and serve the food. They are food security advocates. Our programs exist not only to feed those that hunger for food, but also the hunger for hope.
