Our format has changed! If you haven't visited A Hand Up before, please make sure we have your household information via the online form, then schedule a time to "shop" the pantry here. If you have visited before, you do not need to fill out the form, only schedule an appt. time.
Fresh produce and frozen proteins will be available on a limited, first come first serve basis!
A Food Pantry for Grand Blanc Schools Families
A Hand Up food pantry is located at Grand Blanc West Middle School and provides free food items to families that have a connection to one or more students at Grand Blanc Community Schools, K-12.
A Hand Up does NOT have a visit limit or ID requirement. You do NOT have to be a Grand Blanc resident, just a family of a student at one of these schools. A Hand Up organization is trying to fill a need for those that do not qualify for other Grand Blanc programs, or need food more often than they can provide.
Snacks, meals and drinks are usually available. The pantry is restocked as necessary, and is supplied from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. We have begun supplying some fresh produce and frozen proteins!
It is free and easy! We simply need some very basic information on a form (no official ID is necessary), and you can shop as often as once per week.
Students are filling your orders! The IMPACT, GBHS CSS and A Hand Up are student clubs/classes at WMS and GBHS that are helping make this happen!
