Peanut Butter Returns to DFP’s Most Needed List

September is Hunger Action Month

Even as Dublin Food Pantry (DFP) kicks-off an exciting Capital Campaign, the daily needs of the pantry are always on Director of Operations Jim Wilson’s mind. He supervises teams of volunteers who distribute food and essentials to more than 2,300 individuals a month. Right now, Jim is asking for help stocking pantry shelves with jars of peanut butter, noting that, “For the first time in months, we are unable to source regular sized jars of peanut butter. This is a popular staple providing a shelf stable, high protein food that is family friendly. Donations will make an immediate difference.”

It is easy to drop off donations to the pantry since the donation hallway is open from:

⏰ 7:30AM through 7:30PM everyday.

▷Located on the lower level of Dublin Community Church, the pantry address is:

📍 81 W. Bridge Street, Dublin, Ohio 43017

🧾 Receipts are always available. DFP is a 501(3)c

Under the guidance of a Steering Committee and with the professional services of Cramer and Associates and MJ2 Marketing, Dublin Food Pantry’s capital campaign will make it possible to purchase and renovate a larger, more accessible facility. The City of Dublin and Dublin City Schools are key partners.

DFP’s new home will be conveniently located off of Sawmill Road, making the pantry easily accessible for all families and individuals within the City of Dublin and the Dublin City School district. The new facility will allow DFP to expand outreach programs, partner with other local nonprofit organizations to offer on-site resource connections tailored to customer needs, and even grow fresh produce in-house through an attached garden.
