Approximately 400 families per month receive grocery bags of food that have been provided by others in our community or purchased with funds donated to the Flushing Christian Outreach Center’s account at Food Bank of Eastern Michigan. The bags contain enough food to feed a family for 5 days. FCOC’s Food Pantry provides families with temporary support when they find themselves in emergency situations. Families in need of food are encouraged to call the FCOC at (810) 487-2223 to talk with a volunteer and schedule an appointment. Churches, schools, community service organizations, businesses, and individuals partner with FCOC providing donations, periodic food drives, and other services.
Individuals and families are invited to visit FCOC’s Clothes Closet to choose from clothing that have been donated by individuals in our community.
