youR help makes a difference
Dublin Food Pantry (DFP) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization. We are in our 44th year of providing sufficient, nutritious food and personal care items to our neighbors in need. In 2019, we distributed 366,100 pounds of food and we are outpacing that in 2020.
During the Pandemic, financial donations are crucial and appreciated! As items are harder to safely source, your donations allow us to purchase most needed items through discounted, non-profit sources. We also appreciate donations from our most needed list below.
An unprecedented number of families are being served at this time. Many never imagined that they would need a pantry. Our volunteers hear their stories and their thanks - so we know that your donations make an immediate positive and personal impact.

About our service area...
Dublin City Schools is 10th largest districts in Ohio. It covers 47 square miles and spans 3 counties and 8 zip codes. And according to the 2017 American Community Survey, Dublin City Schools, and the Ohio Dept. of Education:
15% of Dublin students are considered “economically disadvantaged.” In 8 Dublin school buildings, this figure exceeds 20%,
6.3% of all families with children live below the poverty level.
4,679 households live on less than $35,000 annually.
More than 1,100 households have no vehicle available.
The pandemic impact has created new need for some and more need amongst our most vulnerable - seniors, children, families already impacted by medical or unexpected setbacks.
We are grateful beyond measure for all donations during this difficult time for so many. Your financial donations are especially important! We can use funds to purchase exactly what is needed when it is needed. We are a partner agency of Mid-Ohio Foodbank and can purchase items at discounted price with your kind donations.
