Mission Statement

Love Thy Neighbor Ministries collaborates with non-profit organizations, churches and community volunteers to meet the needs of our community

Thank You

Love Thy Neighbor Ministries would like to thank Folk Oil Company and PS Food Marts for supporting our weekend children's backpack program through their October Pop Tart promotion. Because of their dedication and hard work we received over 15,000 Pop Tarts for this program, Tammy and her staff at the 11 mile/I 94 location and Michelle and staff at the Beckley Road location were impressive in their efforts. We must also thank their generous customers for buying and donating each Pop Tart. This would not have been successful without them. THANK YOU FOR THIS PARTNERSHIP!!!

Receiving Food

Necessary Documentation

Patrons need to bring documentation proving their current address and identifications (a Drivers License, a Social Security Card or a bill showing your name and address).

Once Every 30 Days

Patrons are only allowed to use our services once every 30 days. If more frequent assistance is required, contact 211 for a referral.

Our Service Region

Patrons must have a permanent address within our service region to qualify.


We carry most staple food items such as meat and bread as well as necessities such as soap and toilet paper.

Unfortunately not at this time.

There is no cost involved as long as you qualify.

Going through 211 is not necessary, though if you live outside our coverage area 211 can refer you based on your individual needs.

Yes absolutely! Feel free to call or email to express your interest and look below for more ways to get involved.

Looking For Ways to Give Back?

We're looking for donations of fresh garden produce from your excess. Most of our clients don't have gardens and it is a great blessing for them to get fresh produce.
