Funding to provide food for our patrons is provided by our two sponsoring congregations St Clare’s and Temple Beth Emeth as well as by the generous donations of individuals, local businesses, grants, and fund raising efforts. 
Donate by Check: If you are interested, you can also help feed the hungry in our community by making a tax-deductible donation … the old fashion way … by mailing a check made out to Back Door Food Pantry to:

Back Door Food Pantry | 2309 Packard St | Ann Arbor, MI 48104

100% of your donation goes to alleviate food insecurity!

Donate On-Line: To do this, simply send a text message to (734) 294-5660 with the word BDFP as the subject.  You will then receive a text message reply containing the link to the donation web page.  Click the link, and then, in your smart phone or desktop web browser, enter your name, address, donation amount, and credit card information. Even more simply, you can click the donate link below.
When you click the above link, the SMS message app on your phone or desktop computer will prepare the text message to send, but you must first send it and then enter necessary information on the donation web page sent in the reply to your message.
Donate Food: While most food provided to our patrons is purchased from or donated by Food Gatherers, the Back Door food Pantry also  appreciates and accepts donations of non-perishable food and personal care items. All donated products must contain the sealed, original packaging with labels listing contents and possible allergens. Also food donations must not be past the labeled expiration or “use by” date.
Please do not drop off any unsolicited donations inside the BDFP.  We are also temporarily  requesting  donors to check first on our needs and room for accepting donations before they leave donations of non-perishable food  and toiletries in the BDFP barrel inside the Genesis coat room near TBE’s  gift shop. We will periodically publish suggestions of our current needs.
