In our 45th year, Dublin Food Pantry (DFP) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization connecting neighbors with nutritious food, personal care items (not covered by SNAP, and helpful resources.
The pandemic impact thus far has been significant, to say the least. DFP served 79% more individuals in 2020 and in the first two months of 2021, we experienced a 43% increase. We are seeing new need and more need amongst our most vulnerable – children and seniors and individuals already impacted by medical or unexpected setbacks. Our teams are working hard to meet this need.
All of our traditionally scheduled food and fundraisers were canceled in 2020 but many in our community responded to the cancellations by asking "How can we help?" That's why this page lists a variety of ways to help safely.
Please be assured that your help makes a real difference.
Our frontline volunteers hear the very personal stories of our customers - often with tears, frustration, stress. And they hear the thank you's and the sincere appreciation. Our teams are inspired by seeing the kindness of our community and the effect of that kindness.
Here are some of the ways to help:
