Replacing Hunger with HOPE!
We're committed to making our community as hunger-free as possible, and here are a few ways we're making a difference:
Mobile Food Pantry
On the fourth Saturday of every month, VHC offers food pantry services at our Jackson campus (123 E. Porter Street), as well as on location at the Woodland Hills Apartments on Ellery Avenue in Jackson.
Fresh Food Initiative
From July through the end of September, VHC partners with the Food Bank of South Central Michigan to offer fresh produce, free of charge, at our Parma campus location (100 E. Main St., Parma). Produce is available Mondays beginning at 8:30 a.m., while supplies last.
Weekend Food Backpacks
In partnership with Northeast Elementary School in Jackson and Compassionate Ministries, VHC is providing weekend food backpacks for students experiencing food insecurity in their home. Each week around 50 families are being reached with this program. During the summer, this program continues to provide weekly assistance to these students, meeting in a local park to provide backpacks.
