As long as there are hungry people in our community,
our doors and hearts will be open to help
Hands Food Pantry provides food and toiletries to residents
of Oakland County. Completely staffed by a dedicated group of
volunteers, the pantry is open on Monday afternoons and Saturday
mornings. In 2015 we served over 13,500 people.
Hands Food Pantry is located in the lower level of St. John's Episcopal
Church at the corner of Woodward Avenue and 11 Mile Road in Royal Oak, Michigan. Enter the
parking lot from 11 Mile Road. Come in the glass double doors and
straight down the stairs.
Royal Oak Restaurant Week is Coming,
and Open Hands is a Partner!
Royal Oak Restaurant Week is taking place Friday, November 4 through Sunday, November 13. Over 20 of downtown Royal Oak’s top restaurants will be offering 3 course lunch and dinner menus for $15, $25, or $35 a person. We are very pleased that RORW will be partnering with Open Hands Food Pantry this year! The participating restaurants will be collecting non-perishable food items for Open Hands, and customers who donate food will receive exclusive coupons and get specials for themselves!
This is a great opportunity to enjoy great food at great Royal Oak restaurants, and to support Open Hands as well. Click HERE for more information.
