Community Compassion Network food pantry to close next month

The closing of a local food pantry could affect hundreds of families in Isabella County.

The Community Compassion Network’s stationary food pantry is set to close due to high overhead costs to run the facility.

Tom Olver is President of United Way of Isabella County.

He said, “It’s a real concern. There are some 500 families that have been taking advantage of the services at the stationary pantry on a monthly basis, and we’ve spent the better part of our week communicating with our non-profit organizations and community leaders to try and understand what impact that will have across the community.”

Olver said the network’s mobile food pantries will continue to operate and serve the needs of the community until a new facility is acquired.

The last day guests will be served at the pantry is June 26th.
