"There is a much bigger need for assistance in our community than most people realize."
~ Estella Roberts, President of Brooklyn Food Pantry
Providing Food Assistance to
Families and Individuals
The Brooklyn Food Pantry is an an organization run by a board of community volunteers that want to reach out to the needy within the community. We hand out food to those that have hit rough times in the Columbia, Napoleon, and Onsted school districts.
This organization was started in the 1970's by a group of people that were concerned about hunger within the community. There was a strong desire to help families that needed assistance. With the involvement of people volunteering, the Brooklyn Food Pantry (formerly known as CCIS) began it's mission.
We are opened every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:00 am - 2:00 pm. Food and toiletry donations can be dropped off during our normal business hours. Monetary donations can be dropped off or mailed to Brooklyn Food Pantry, 171 Wamplers Lake Rd, Brooklyn, MI 49230.

The mission of the Brooklyn Food Pantry is to assist community members residing in
the Columbia, Napoleon, and Onsted school districts who are in need of emergency food.
A quick recap of 2015- in 2015 we fed over 4,000 local people on our Tuesdays and Thursdays hours. We added an additional opportunity on the first Saturday of every month for anyone ( limited to the first 48 families) to come in from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. and receive an additional bag of food. This is made possible through a partnership with Compassionate Ministries of Jackson County. As always the Brooklyn Food Pantry is extremely grateful for everyone's support so we can continue our mission of helping people in need in Columbia, Napoleon and Onsted School Districts.

We look forward to hearing from you!
