In order to meet immediate needs of our community, Baxter’s Marketplace provides emergency food assistance and emergency clothing assistance. As immediate needs are met, neighbors can participate in other programs offered by Baxter to help build towards long-term solutions.
By helping to fulfill basic needs, the Market Place assists individuals and families in being able to focus on other needs. Food and clothing resources are provided by area organizations, educational institutions, and individuals.
Baxter’s Greenhouse also provides fresh produce to the pantry, allowing neighbors access to more nutritious food. As a part of the Access of West Michigan Food Pantry Network, Baxter also assists in matching families & providers for Holiday Baskets.
