The Healthy Client Choice Food Pantry provides clients a grocery store-like atmosphere, with products arranged on shelves and in coolers/freezers. Clients are provided a food card as they shop, guiding them to nutritionally balanced selections. The number of items selected is based on the number of people in the client’s household. This collaboration with the Lucas County Health Department gives our neighbors the dignity of selecting food based on their cultural differences and health needs.
We not believe that a person should have to choose between eating and being clean. The Closet offers items that often times eat up a household budget; the provision of these items allows our families to stretch their limited dollars. The Closet depends on donations from various corporate and community partners and the Friendly Center Women’s Service Guild.
