A Successful Celebration – 2022 Impact Report Event

I have worked in emergency food for a long time and never have I seen a community rally together to give as Dublin has. It is truly a special place.” – Dinky Youngsteadt-Parrish

From the pantry’s humble beginnings in March 1976 serving 20 families to now serving upwards of 90 families, our community has gone above and beyond to help accommodate this growing need. This year more than ever, the Dublin community heard the demands of a growing need, listened to how to help, and stepped up to the plate.

Last Wednesday, we gathered, ate (thanks to the delicious food and beverages provided by Shake Shack) and celebrated our victories to date, and shared our vision for the future. Our wonderful panel of speakers not only shared how the Dublin Food Pantry has impacted the community as a whole, but also how it has touched them personally.

Thank you to Jennifer Schwanke, Ed.D., Deputy Superintendent of Dublin City Schools, Rick Guzak, DFP Board Member & Volunteer, Cheryl Graffagnino, Program Officer with Osteopathic Heritage Foundations for sharing your insights and perspectives with us, and for all that you do to #feeddublin

We look forward to another year of growth as we work to make a more effective and accessible pantry for all and can cannot thank everyone enough who has volunteered, donated, and supported the pantry thus far.

Stay tuned for further updates on campaign progress and updates on our new facility at 6608 Dublin Center Drive, opening in the summer of 2023!
