Souperbowl Sunday

This Sunday, Heart to Heart food pantry is holding a soup drive during all worship services. Look for the team’s volunteer quarterbacks at collection sites out in the parking lot at both locations to drop off your donations on your way in or out. We would love hearty meal-type soups, and our Pop-Up Pantry is particularly interested in soup in pop-top cans for those without kitchens and/or can openers to use. Also, for a $5 donation (cash or check), you can become the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind soup bowl or mug! These have been lovingly decorated by First Community Church’s Midweek Mission (K-8 grade) and Crossroads (6-12 grade) students for this special occasion. Which service will donate the most soup?! Heart to Heart wins, regardless of the final score.

You’re Invited

Volunteers are the key to the success of Heart to Heart food pantry. On February 16, allow us to show our appreciation at our Volunteer Appreciation Dinner. Prior to the pandemic, we hosted this dinner annually, and we are so happy to bring it back! Please plan to join us at First Community North in Grace Hall for a meal and casual fellowship with one another. Yohan and Amy will provide some information during the meal, and you’ll have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss. Plan to take the night off from cooking and dishes as we turn the tables to serve you. Please RSVP below by Monday, February 13.

Training Opportunities

The Mid-Ohio Food Collective offers regular training opportunities for food pantry staff and volunteers. For volunteers, the most useful trainings are FreshTrak and Food Safety. These trainings, specifically, will help you learn more about pantry operations and make you an even more effective volunteer! They also occasionally offer training on advocacy, and other topics that may be of interest to you.

Some of these classes are in person on the MOFC campus in Grove City. However, many are Zoom meetings, so you can participate from home. If you would like to take advantage of these opportunities to learn, please visit the Agency360 website for detailed information and links to sign up.

For most of the classes, you’ll need to sign up with our pantry name and ID:
Heart to Heart, Agency #1042
