Neighborhood House Food Pantry Open for Business

Neighborhood House, a food pantry and service center committed to building self-sustainability, is remaining open during Michigan’s executive order to suspend all unnecessary activities. The food pantry is considered an essential service to sustain life. However due to the recent outbreak of COVID-19, demands are on the rise and donations are in short supply.

“Over 25% of Rochester households are food or income insecure. That means they cannot put enough food on the table, or are one paycheck from disaster. Neighborhood House’s mission is to walk the path toward self-sustainability with our neighbors during times of hardship. But with increases in layoffs and parents out of work food insecurity is on the rise,” said Neighborhood House Director Kathy Losinski.

Neighborhood House is currently taking new clients and is operating the food pantry as normal.

“There has been some confusion after the executive order mandating people suspend all activity not essential to sustain life but people can still come to the food pantry to get supplies,” Losinski said. “We are open normal business hours and are taking new clients.”

The food pantry is open Monday through Thursday from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and Saturday from 10:00 a.m. 12 noon.

“In times like these it is imperative neighbors stand together to support our most vulnerable populations. I often say we have an overabundance of generosity in this community and I am confident that under this pressing need our neighbors will come through,” said Rochester Hills Mayor Bryan K. Barnett.

Currently, financial donations are the best way to help. Financial donations can be made online or my mailing a check to Neighborhood House’s main office at 1720 S. Livernois, Rochester Hills, MI.
