Friends of New Troy Community Center

The hidden treasure of Southwest Berrien County. New Troy, Michigan, offers a natural and serene setting for our community center. The forest with hiking trails that back the building provides a peaceful backdrop for yoga classes and our monthly Gather &...events. It is a beautiful space to have a wedding or family gathering. Our center is multi-faceted as it is home to small businesses and private offices, and offers affordable rental opportunities for events and gatherings.

Little Free Pantry

Friends of New Troy's Little Free Pantry is accessible in the main hallway of our community center during Activities Room hours. 

Neighbors can help neighbors by exchanging non-expired shelf-stable goods, canned foods, as well as toiletries and self-care products.

The pantry serves many, so we request that visitors limit themselves to taking 8-10 items per week so there is enough for everyone. Please review and honor the pantry's posted rules when visiting the community center.
