Starting in 2016, Emmanuel members initiated and led the development of 4 school-based pantries in Petoskey and Harbor Springs that serve over 100 middle and high school youth weekly. Begun as a food pantry, this ministry has expanded to include hygiene products, school supplies and some clothing items. Students are given an opportunity to select for themselves the items they need each week. The food they receive supplements their weekend needs when school is not in session. The pantries are staffed by volunteers from Emmanuel, other churches, and the broader community.
Northmen Den Youth Services is now an indepenent 501c3. However, we are glad to continue to support and partner with the youth pantries to uplift youth in our local community. To learn more, visit their website at northmendens.org.
