Holy Spirit Lutheran Church in Grand Blanc will once again distribute free food to the area's needy families this Saturday. This is the sixth consecutive year HSLC has offered free food, provided by the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan.

Canned and box goods, as well as a limited number of fresh and frozen food items are to be given away on a first-come, first-served basis.

Last year, Holy Spirit gave away approximately 12,000 pounds of food to about 750 needy individuals each month.  This Saturday's (May 19th) distribution is scheduled from 9:30 to 11:30 am, or until the food supply is depleted.

Additional food giveaways are planned for July 21, August 18, September 15 and October 6, rain or shine.

No proof of income or need is required, but recipients must present a driver's license or photo ID.

"Holy Spirit is glad to provide the assistance to those who are in need. The church sees these food distributions as a natural consequence of our mission to share God's love," said Pastor Will Stenke.

Holy Spirit Lutheran Church is located at 7234 Fenton Rd. in Grand Blanc. It's on the west side of Fenton Road, approximately one quarter mile north of Grand Blanc Road.
