Church to give away food on April 16Written by Emily Gibb | | email@example.com
Crossroads Church in Ottawa Lake is hosting a free food giveaway from 10 a.m. to noon April 16.
Last year’s food giveaway brought more than 300 cars, said Becky Fielder, office manager of Crossroads.
“We’re hoping it will help people with an Easter meal,” Fielder said.
They buy the food in large pallets from a food bank in Detroit and also collect food donations. The pallets are placed around the parking lot so people can drive their cars through while volunteers hand them the bags of food.
“It is so much fun and the people that serve get so much more out of it than the people that receive,” Fielder said. “It’s really, really fun to help people and just come together.”
Other churches involved with the food giveaway include Whiteford Wesleyan Church, St. Michael’s Lutheran Church and Lighthouse Church — all located in Ottawa Lake.
There are no requirements to receive food, but the church welcomes people to call ahead if they would like. For more information, call Crossroads Church at (734) 854-1301.
