CENTER LINE–MyCare Health Center, a Macomb County-based Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), is pleased to continue their partnership with the Macomb County Food Bank to offer a no cost food pantry at their two locations in Macomb County. Food will be available monthly at their Mount Clemens and Center Line locations on alternating months.
MyCare hosted its first food pantry in August 2021 in Mount Clemens during National Health Center Week. It was so well received that both organizations felt it would be beneficial to the community to continue offering the food pantry, but to alternate between two of MyCare’s locations. Throughout the rest of the year, two pantries were held in Mount Clemens and two in Center Line. In total, over 180 people we served between both locations. Dates have been scheduled for 2022 with the first distribution event on Tuesday, January 25 from 10 a.m. – 12 p.m. at 18 Market Street, Mount Clemens. The pantry is open to the public, regardless if they are a Macomb County resident. Some items participants can expect to receive are frozen meats, cheese, butter, rice, cereal, milk, bread, and boxes of shelf sustainable food items. Cooler totes will be available while supplies last.
In response to the partnership with MyCare, Ann Wagner from the Macomb County Food Bank stated, “The collaboration between the Macomb County Food Program and MyCare Health Centers is a win-win for our residents. We are grateful for this like-minded partnership, allowing the Food Program to widen its reach, providing relief to even more residents in need.”
“Based on last year’s success, we felt it was important to continue our partnership with the Macomb County Food Bank,” said Karen Wood, CEO of MyCare Health Center. “Serving the community through collaborating with fellow Macomb County organizations is something we strive to do to better serve our community at large.”
