CHOCOLAY TWP, Mich. (WLUC) - A mobile food pantry stopped in Chocolay Township Thursday.

Feeding America brought 540 boxes of food to Silver Creek Thrift Store. With rising inflation and gas prices, more people rely on food pantries than usual. Cars filled the Silver Creek parking lot starting around 7:30 Thursday morning.

Silver Creek’s lead pastor says that even though more people are in need than usual, it is heartening to see the community step up to help its members.

“It really is an encouraging thing to see the way the community works together to help feed other members of the community,” said Kevin Taylor, Silver Creek Church lead pastor.

The mobile pantry ran out of food after only an hour. To donate to Feeding America West Michigan, click here.
