During the pandemic, Dublin Food Pantry has made some operational changes for safety. Complete details below.
About Established in 1976, Dublin Food Panty (DFP) is ordinarily a choice pantry with a grocery store-like setting. However, during the COVID-19 Pandemic, we are currently NOT a walk-in pantry and are serving curbside.
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 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, birthday bags, vegetarian staples, and so on. If ONCE a month visit is not meeting your family's needs, please email email@example.com
