NSI Food Pantry is growing and providing groceries to more neighbors in need than ever before! Due to this increase in neighbors utilizing our food pantry, we need more food! The Mid-Ohio Food Collective offers us the opportunity to pick up food, free of cost, from their Grove City location. We are looking for 1-2 volunteers with a large vehicle (at least an SUV, a truck or trailer hitch would be even better!) that can pickup food at The Mid-Ohio Food Collective and bring it to NSI.

Product can be picked up Monday-Friday between the hours of 8:30 am - 11:30 am, or 1:00 pm - 3:30 pm. Staff at the food bank will assist you when you arrive. We are looking for a volunteer to help within these hours any day of the week, though Monday - Wednesday would have the most impact, since our pantry is closed on the weekends. Product must arrive at NSI before 4 pm.

If you can help, or would like to learn more about this opportunity, please reach out to Director of Operations Lindsay Barber at lbarber@neighborhoodservicesinc.org

In addition to food programs, we also distribute backpacks stuffed with school supplies in August, and Christmas toys for children up to 12 years old in December.
