When unexpected situations happens, our food pantry provides a little extra help to stretch the budget. The pantry provides non-perishable food, meat, eggs, milk, bread, toilet paper, and personal care items based on the family size. Our goal is to provide a week’s worth of items (7 days x 3 meals a day).

Under the Redeemer guidelines, we ask that you have a referral to visit, but if you cannot get one for the first visit, we will serve you and ask that you get one within the next 2 months. You only need to renew your referral every 12 months. You are allowed to visit the food pantry once a month (approximately every 30 days).

Referrals can be obtained from Michigan Dept. of Health & Human Services (1-844-464-3447). Or, if you do not work with DHHS, you may get a referral through Christian Services (517-394-5411), Caring & Sharing Family Life Services, Wraparound, Eight-Cap, Headstart, WIC, St. Vincent de Paul in St Johns, CACS, Housing Services of Mid-Michigan, MSU Extension, Safe Center, Veteran Housing Services, Michigan Works, Highfields, Community Mental Health, and the Mid-Michigan Health Department.

Over the years of operation, the Redeemer congregation has generously provided the majority of the financial and in-kind support needed; supplemented by donations and food drives from the DeWitt community. Financial support is also provided through the Meijer Simply Give Program.

If DeWitt Public Schools are closed on a Tuesday due to inclement weather, the Redeemer food pantry will also be closed.
