Hunger Prevention

Hunger Prevention Programs decrease poverty and promote prosperity by working to ensure that all people in our community have consistent, dependable access to enough food for active, healthy living.

Mobile Food Pantry

We partner with Feeding America West Michigan on a monthly mobile food pantry visit at TrueNorth, typically the last Wednesday of the month except in December (when there is no visit because of the holidays). We are currently hosting food trucks twice a month to meet an increase in need. In addition, TrueNorth works with Feeding America West Michigan and the Fremont Area Community Foundation to help coordinate the mobile food pantry schedule in Newaygo County.
