Happy Summer

Jul 21, 2020 By

Dear Neighbors, Friends, and Community,

It is hard to believe that we have been working under our Covid conditions for 17 weeks. Spring is gone and we are now deep into summer.

We long for normalcy, however we know that normal will look very different in the weeks and months to come.

The Green Apple is taking back volunteers on a scheduled basis. If you are interested in helping us feed our neighbors please contact Yoli via email (at yolifuentes@thegreenapplepantry.org).

Covid 19 Update

As we move forward towards a new normal, The Green Apple is working hard to ensure that we stay healthy and are able to meet the needs of our neighbors.

We have established a new policy for checking in our neighbors and the distribution of food to those who have a need. This will be a fluid process and we will make mistakes along the way; things may change many times before we get it right.

What’s new at The Green Apple

January 2020 Newsletter pdf

First lets start with our new name. As many of you already know we are now using the name The Green Apple. The board applied to the State of Michigan last summer to do business as The Green Apple and we have their ap- proval. The reasoning was that The Pantry was too specific for our community. We wanted a name that included all of the services and programs we provide. Since the green apple was in our logo it seemed to be the obvious choice. The board is currently working with a free lance artist to make the necessary changes. We plan to keep the green and orange color scheme and will have new brochure and stationery by the first of February.
