Food and Clothing

Take the pantry to the people!

So began an idea that Midland’s Open Door is offering to employees or employers who would like to support a food drive for our Soup Kitchen’s pantry. We can bring a mobile pantry to your work site or place of business and give your employees or coworkers an opportunity to help stock Midland's Open Door's larder. Your food donations (and wise cooks in our kitchen) have kept our food costs to 17 cents per meal in 2013. Call us at (989) 835-2291 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

Food Donations

Food donations are always welcome! If you are having a banquet, picnic, wedding reception, meeting or any other gathering, please consider the Open Door as a great place to take excess food. We have large refrigerators and freezers and can accommodate large donations of prepared food. We also appreciate fresh fruit and vegetables, breads of all types, meat and just about anything we can use to feed the hungry. Donations of nonperishable goods like canned goods, dry cereal, pasta and sauces, soda pop, bottled water, etc are always appreciated and are put to very good use. Food donations can be dropped off any time at our Buttles Street location.

Clothing Donations

We accept good, clean clothing for men, and women suitable for any season and size. Much needed items include new socks and underwear, good used coats and jackets, jeans, t-shirts, blouses, slacks, shoes - just about anything in good condition. You may bring your donation at any time - simply drop it into the drop-off chute left of the entrance door of the clothing shed at our Buttles Street location. If you have questions regarding our Clothing Ministry, please call the main office at 989 835-2291. We distribute clothing to those in need on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 12:00 noon and 1:30 pm, no questions asked.
