Our NOW (Nutritional Options for Wellness) Pantry, is a collaborative work with Spectrum Health and Access of West Michigan, helping people with chronic health conditions to take control of their illness. This is our second year as a NOW Pantry site. At The Pantry we love this program! The program facilitates change, real change in peoples’ lives. Reducing health concerns for one person adds huge value back into the community by returning people to greater productivity, helping lower everyone’s overall health costs, and increasing quality of life. Even the social safety net receives a reprieve when someone’s health is restored and their illnesses managed!
