Jehovah Jireh Ministries of West Michigan currently has two regular distribution times – Thursday afternoons from 1 PM to 6 PM, and Saturdays from 8 AM to 1 PM.  Emergency food pickups can be made on other days by special arrangement.  Unlike most food pantries, the majority of their food is perishable items.  Fruit, vegetables, dairy, meat, frozen, and bakery items are the majority of a mix that is a little different each week, as the vast majority of our food is donated surplus food from wholesalers, grocery stores, truckers, and local farmers.
