Announcing New Pop-Up Pantry

by Janice Rook

With food insecurity continuing to grow in Central Ohio during the recent widespread pandemic, Heart to Heart is expanding its mission by reaching out to serve clients and their families directly in their local communities while continuing to provide our current drive-through service.

Pop Up Pantry sites will be established working in partnership with local community agencies, such as supportive housing complexes, senior centers and neighborhood community centers and other community-based organizations.  Food from our pantry will be bagged and delivered to an agency’s site location for distribution to clients and their families.

The Pop Up Pantry will operate once a week with a small team of volunteers.  All Pop Up Pantry volunteers will follow current COVID-19 guidelines, including social distancing, face covering and hand hygiene, to ensure a safe environment.

Through the Pop Up Pantry, Heart to Heart continues to further the mission of First Community in serving others as God calls us to do and in meeting the needs of our local community during a time of a serious and widespread pandemic and increased food insecurity.

If you are interested in volunteering for this new opportunity, please contact Janice Rook or Melody Smiley

Closed Next Friday

As Independence Day falls on a Saturday, we will be closed the preceding Friday, July 3, for volunteer shifts. We wish you all a fun and safe holiday.

And what does the Lord
require of you
But to do justice,
To love mercy,
And to walk humbly
with your God?
Micah 6:8 NKJ

Our mission at Heart to Heart is to respond to God’s commandment to love one another.
Our vision of Heart to Heart is to model God’s love by:
Cultivating a loving community
Honoring individual gifts
Feeding bodies and souls
…and seeing everyone as a child of God
