We need YOU to help us meet the need!  Half of the food in our choice pantry comes from individuals, schools, scouts, faith-based and service organizations, and businesses in our community, just like you! The other half is purchased from the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. 

There are many ways our supporters collect these items—everything from major food drives, like the Worthington Libraries Food For Fines program, to collections by scouts and sports teams, to shoppers at the Farmers’ Market who purchase extra fresh produce, to all those wonderful gardeners who share their bounty with us.

Donating food and personal care items is a great way to serve our neighbors in need. It is an especially good way to introduce children to community service!

If you would like to hold a food drive, please contact our food drive coordinator at food.drives@worthingtonfoodpantry.org
