Welcome to the
Dublin Food Pantry
Serving our Dublin neighbors for over 46 years
Ways to help
From sharing your time and/or treasure to connecting us with your network, there are a variety of ways you can help us to ensure #EveryoneEatsHere
We are here to connect neighbors in need from within the City of Dublin and the Dublin City School District with nutritious food, essentials, and resources.
For over 46 years, the Dublin Food Pantry has been providing food, hygiene products, and resources to individuals and families within our community who are experiencing food insecurity.
Over 4,700 Dublin households live on less than $35,000 annually
The pantry currently serves an average of 2,500 individuals and families each month
There has been a 92% increase in Dublin neighbors served since 2019
37% of our local population served in 2021 were children (0-17)
16% of Dublin students are considered economically disadvantaged, in some schools, this number is as high as 70%
$1 can feed a family of four
1 in 6 children in Ohio lives in a household that faces hunger
1 in 8 people in Ohio will face hunger
8 out of every 10 low-income Ohio households are part of the workforce
The startling statistics
With a 92% increase in Dublin neighbors served by the Pantry since 2019, the need is greater than ever. We believe we are serving roughly 25% of the families and individuals in need.
Our comprehensive capital campaign
In order to meet the growing needs of our neighbors, the Dublin Food Pantry has launched a $3 million capital campaign to purchase and renovate a larger, more accessible facility at 6608 Dublin Center Drive.
“In Dublin it is very difficult to see hunger. Hunger is silent. It steals the light from the eyes of our children and darkens the eyes of adults. It is a basic human need that goes unmet on a daily basis. #feeddublin #everyoneeatshere”
– Denise “Dinky” Youngsteadt-Parrish, Executive Director, Dublin Food Pantry
Our future facility will allow us to expand our outreach, partner with other nonprofit organizations, grow fresh produce in-house, and expand our CHOICE pantry.
Our CHOICE pantry allows families to have a dignified shopping experience with compassionate and exemplary customer service, choosing which items they want to take home. We strive to provide high-quality and high-quantity fresh produce whenever possible.
How to help
Your gift today is vital to distributing nutritious food to our hungry neighbors in Dublin. We efficiently and compassionately serve children, families, seniors, and more.
Now more than ever, it is critical to have food available for our neighbors in need. We can’t do it with you, so please learn more about our volunteer opportunities and upcoming events.
