Our Client Choice Food Pantry allows the opportunity for those in emergency situations to choose their own food/personal/cleaning items after calling for an appointment. When a prospective client calls, initial information is taken, and the process for obtaining assistance is explained.
Due to COVID, we have gone to curbside pickup while still remaining client choice. We have canned and packaged foods, fresh bread, fresh fruit and vegetables (when available), juice, milk and eggs, frozen meat, personal and cleaning products, and baby items available for each client. Each client selects his/her own food products over the phone, and a time is set for pickup. Each client can receive assistance up to 6 times per year and no sooner than 4 weeks past the most recent visit.Clothing
In-season clothing (including outerwear) for all ages (infant – adult) is available. Call 517.223.4428 to make an appointment.

Over the past several years, we have offered an after-school tutoring program for Fowlerville elementary students in Kindergarten through 5th Grade who are struggling with math and/or reading skills. Several retired (and current) teachers donate their time and expertise to provide assistance one day a week for one and a half (1 1/2) hours. Results have proven to be very positive since students are afforded more one-on-one time, which also helps to build confidence.
Although currently closed due to COVID, these classes will hopefully begin in the Fall of 2021 and continue through May, 2022. Location is the Family Impact Wellness Center (9430 W. Grand River), and students may either ride one of the Fowlerville Schools buses or be dropped off by a parent/guardian. Please call (517) 223-4428 for more information.
