Portage Township Food Pantry

Events & Press
Financial donations are the backbone of the pantry.  With your monetary donation, we stretch each dollar further by purchasing in bulk or large quantities, allowing us to purchase more and provide more to our clients.  Pantry members are careful and trustworthy stewards of your monetary donations.  With little overhead costs, over 90% of monetary donations received are used to purchase food which is gien right back out into our community.

Besides direct financial contributions, several local community groups, and businesses host fundraising events on our behalf, donating events proceeds to the pantry. We encourage YOU and you organization to consider helping the pantry, financially, in any way or amount that you can.
