For ongoing assistance call HandsOn Central Ohio at 2-1-1 or (614) 221-2255 to find a food pantry in your area. Referrals are also accepted from Dublin churches and social service agencies.
Clients are responsible for the care of their children; the Dublin Food Pantry does not provide child care while clients shop. Infants and young children may be placed in a shopping cart seat while the adult shops. Due to safety concerns, other children are not allowed in the canned goods aisles of the shopping area. All children (not in shopping cart seats) under the age of 12 must be supervised in the reception area by a family member or friend as the client shops.
If you do not have someone to watch your children you will be provided a shopping list of canned goods, toiletries, and baby items that are available in the Pantry. You can choose the items you would like and a volunteer will shop for you while you supervise your children. The meat and produce areas are not enclosed aisles so you and your children can shop for meat and produce.
We reserve the right to request proof of your address and number of people living in your household and your current income. On your first visit bring ALL of the following items:
