Nativity Food Pantry

In 2015, Nativity decided to participate with the newly formed Good Neighbors Food Pantry of Boyne City.  A plot of land behind Nativity was tilled and in the spring of 2016, a garden was planted with harvested produce to be donated exclusively to the Good Neighbors Good Pantry.  Our garden is healthy and thriving.  We are blessed with great volunteers who come to weed and care for our garden.  Our first harvest was radishes with tomatoes, beans, and pepper to come.  We are truly blessed for the many donations to and for our little garden.  But it is those who we serve who are vbenefiting from a simple act of sharing what we have.  Those are the seeds we are most proud of.
