The Father Fred Foundation offers help, hope, and compassion to anyone in our community with essential needs.
We honor the legacy of Father Fred by continuing his motto of listening, caring, and sharing. Since 1989, the Father Fred Foundation has been helping individuals and families with fresh, healthy food, clothing and household goods, and financial assistance. We serve five local counties (Antrim, Benzie, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, and Leelanau), and welcome all individuals, treating them with dignity and respect, just as Father Fred did.

The Father Fred Foundation is locally founded, locally funded and locally focused. All services, and everything we offer, is given free of charge to those in need. A dedicated team of volunteers, staff and generous donors are the hands and hearts of Father Fred. In addition to our onsite services, we also offer several outreach programs to reach those unable to visit our onsite pantry.

Want to help?

WE WILL BE CLOSED the week of July 1-5 for building maintenance. We will reopen July 9.
