The Senior Pantry program was started in 1998 with funding from the Kent County Senior Millage. There are currently three locations to receive our pantry services. The pantries are open to Kent County residents who are 60 years of age and older who meet income requirements. Clients may shop at the senior pantries up to twice per month, choosing from a variety of different food items equaling $30-$40 in groceries each visit. We ask a $1 donation for each visit.
