Meals & Grocery Distribution

Early in 2019, there will be an opportunity for individuals who attend classes and activities to select their own groceries, including fresh produce, dairy products, frozen items, personal hygiene and household cleaners, through our newly expanded Choice Pantry. 

A warm morning meal is served on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday  from 9:00 to 9:40 a.m.  The building opens at 8:00 a.m. and guests are welcome to come in out of the elements.

Meals served by our kitchen staff and volunteers provide balanced nutrition. Seconds are available as supply allows. Unopened food items (e.g. an apple, a bag of chips or juice box) may be taken home and saved for later.


Donated items from sources such as GFS (Gordon Food Service), Meijer, Entenmann’s Bakery, Bob Evans and local non-perishable food drives by area churches, businesses, and the annual Boy Scouts® Scouting for Food drive are separated and properly stored at the Life Enrichment Center.

Operation Food Share also operates as a program of the Life Enrichment Center.
