Dublin Food Pantry is now offering produce on the second and last Saturday of each month from 9:30 - 10:30 AM. Another "new" option is a new location - DFP will offer fresh produce from Heartland of Dublin on the last Saturday of the month.
“We are hoping to get the word out about our expanded produce distribution hours - and appreciate expanding to Heartland of Dublin's location on the last Saturday of the month. Dublin Food Pantry’s goals include reaching more Dublin area families and individuals in need of fresh food and reaching those who are not accessing the food pantry during regular hours,” said Denise Youngsteadt-Parrish, DFP Executive Director, “We are excited to offer produce choices on two Saturdays a month, a day we are not open, to reach out to our community in this way.”
Heartland of Dublin is partnering with Dublin Food Pantry as one of their community outreach programs because food insecurity is often a serious barrier to recovery when patients leave the nursing home. According to Heartland’s Jennifer Jones, Business Development Specialist, “Working with community organizations such as the Dublin Food Pantry is a natural fit. The Dublin Food Pantry provides resources that patients can use when they return back home.”
The produce distribution Saturdays are in addition to regular pantry hours which are listed as: Monday 5:30-7:15 PM, Tuesday 10 – 11:45 AM, and Thursday 4 – 6:15 PM.
