Note: Food is still available in the drive-through Pantry, and The Clothing Center is now open! Please see below for details:

Things are a bit different at the moment as we’re working with the local Health Department for safe shopping guidelines due to COVID-19. 

Food Pantry:  Food is still available in the drive-up model, and you can request your bag(s) by calling BACN Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. till 2 p.m. (231-882-9544).  At the time you request your bag(s) we’ll offer you the additional items we have available that day, such as meats, milk, eggs, fresh produce, laundry detergent, etc. Also, did you know the Benzie Bus will deliver food from BACN right to your door? No need to ride the bus at this time. Simply call the bus to arrange delivery  to your doorstep (231-325-3000), and then call BACN for the food. 

Clothing Center:  Please call us for an individual appointment to shop, 231-882-9544. At this time we are only able to accommodate one shopper at a time, for 15-minute appointments, and children are not able to come into the building. Masks must be worn to come into the building and must remain on while you shop. If you are unable to wear a mask, you are welcome to send someone who can wear a mask in to shop on your behalf, or you can give your shopping list and sizes to volunteers who can shop for you.  Our volunteers have completely re-done the clothing area so items are easier to find.

Do you need financial assistance? Please call after 2 p.m. and we will be happy to explore how we might help.

Have you never used BACN but find yourself needing help in this window of time? If you live in Benzie or Northern Manistee Counties, please call us, that’s why we’re here!

We are again able to accept clothing donations each Saturday from 10 a.m. till noon! Due to current best practices around the COVID pandemic, we must use certain guidelines at this time:

1. We can accept CLEAN clothing, bedding and towels

2. We can now accept food donations of non-perishable, staple items such as peanut butter, tuna, canned fruits and vegetables, soups, cereals, oatmeal, brown rice, beans, whole grain pasta and pasta sauce

2. All items must be in plastic grocery bags or garbage bags, we are unable to accept cardboard or tubs at this time

We are grateful for your donations!

Have you 8 minutes? Please watch this video sharing about three people connected to BACN, and its impact on their lives.

This video was created through the generosity of Rotary Charities of Traverse City, by PB & J Marketing who also donated many hours of their expertise to the project.
