Director's Update September 2020

Updated: Sep 10



SEPTEMBER IS NATIONAL HUNGER AWARENESS MONTH


The Dublin Food Pantry has provided food and heartfelt compassion to our community for 44 years! How wonderful to be able to say that. Sadly, food insecurity is still very much an issue, dramatically impacted by the pandemic. We have continuously operated through out the pandemic while adjusting our services to best meet health and safety standards. And we plan to be here for the long haul. As the need for the pantry increases, we are tremendously grateful for community donors, neighborhood food drives collecting our "most needed items" as listed on our website and for community support sharing that the pantry is here to help.


Our service area is large. It includes portions of Franklin, Delaware, and Union covering all of Dublin School District (10th largest in Ohio) and the City of Dublin within 8 zip codes. We have experienced dramatic increases in the need for food and also work with other non-profits and community partners to address other related issues including housing and transportation challenges.


September is designated as National Hunger Awareness Month to spread the word about and take action on the hunger crisis. Education provides all of us with potential solutions for so many Ohioans to this widespread reality.


The Big Picture:

· Each year, hungry neighbors in Franklin County miss about 69 million meals.(https://www.midohiofoodbank.org/who-we-are/what-we-do/).


Hunger has a devastating impact on everyone who experiences it. We are seeing the impact in our community and are striving, with your help, to assure that no one goes hungry.
