Alterative community food assistance programs and providers

As a North Kent Connect client, you can visit multiple area pantries each month.

Call our Pantry Referral Line at (616) 866-3478 and press 5. Leave a message with your name, pantry you wish to visit, and date you would like to go. Wait for a call back and confirmation from a North Kent Connect staff member. All referrals must be made 24 hours in advance. (To visit a pantry on a Monday, please call the prior Thursday and leave us a message.)

It is important that when you are referred, you are able to keep the appointment. Please be considerate of the other families who may be waiting for an opening; call us ASAP if you cannot make your appointment time.
