Location:  Curbside service is in the parking lot of Dublin Community Church, 81 W. Bridge St. Dublin, Ohio 43017 USA

How does Curbside service work? A volunteer will greet you in your vehicle in the parking lot during regular pantry hours.  Please bring your photo ID. At check-in, we will ask about needs, confirm that this is your once-a-month visit, then volunteers will load pre-packaged groceries into your vehicle. This typically includes bread, pastry, meat, dairy, bagged fresh produce, boxed food staples and personal care items.  

 

On a second monthly visit, volunteers will load perishable items including produce, meat and bread. 

Special Requests? Please ask at check-in, often we have additional items that meet specific needs such as diapers, pet food, family large-sized items, vegetarian staples, and so on. If ONCE a month visit is not meeting your family's needs, please email dinky@dublinfoodpantry.org
