FOOD DISTRIBUTION COVID-19 UPDATE
Dublin Food Pantry is here to connect you with needed food without judgement. We offer curbside in-vehicle check-in and load PRE-PACKAGED groceries into your vehicle to follow social distance guidelines. Complete details below.
DRIVE-UP: DFP will now offer curbside in-vehicle check-in. We will load PRE-PACKAGED items into your vehicle to minimize person-to-person contact. Shoppers, or a shopper PROXY, may visit TWICE a month. This is allowed during Ohio's Stay At Home Order, since food is a necessity. Pre-packaged groceries typically include bread, meat, dairy, fresh produce, frozen foods, non-perishable food and essentials. Updates will be posted here as changes occur.
IMPORTANT: Please send a PROXY if you have been exposed to COVID-19, or are sick, have a fever, or are more vulnerable to infection as listed by the CDC: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/specific-groups/high-risk-complications.html
