Who we serve
Hunger continues to grow in our community. In Dublin, the problem is much more prevalent than most of us realize. Over 4,700 households in Dublin live on less than $35,000 annually. Our pantry currently serves an average of 1,000 pantry visits each month, with a monthly average of:
• 3,750 individuals
• 365 seniors (aged 60+)
• 1500 children
For over 47 years, the Dublin Food Pantry has been providing food, hygiene products, and resources to individuals and families in our community experiencing food insecurity and other challenges facing low-income households. The pantry serves multiple ZIP codes and counties within the City of Dublin and Dublin City School District.
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.
Originally called the Dublin Area Emergency Assistance Program (DAEAP), the Dublin Food Pantry was established in March 1976, when the Dublin Community Church received nonprofit designation to formally operate a food pantry. In 2012, Dublin Food Pantry was granted its own 501(c)3 nonprofit status independent of the church.
