Mission All Team Meeting

All Heart to Heart volunteers are invited to attend this monthly meeting. While in attendance you will hear updates on Missions as a whole, and individual updates from ministry teams. The meeting ends with breakout sessions for these teams that allow you the opportunity to discuss with Heart to Heart staff and volunteer leaders. No RSVP is required and you are under no obligation to come to every meeting if you choose to attend. Our next meeting is this coming Monday, October 23 (one-time change in schedule).

This Week at the Pantry

Thank You, Donors!

On Sunday, October 15, many pets were blessed outside First Community South. In honor of the Pet Blessing, Heart to Heart held a collection drive for pet food. Between the worship services and the blessing, we collected 66 pounds of pet food and $23 in donations. Thank you to everyone that participated.

Volunteer Training Opportunities

Mid-Ohio Food Collective Trainings

The Mid-Ohio Food Collective offers regular training opportunities for food pantry staff and volunteers. Trainings on FreshTrak and Food Safety 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.

For most trainings, volunteers will need to register with an agency name and number: Heart to Heart Agency #1042

Register at MOFC Agency360

MOFC FreshTrak Basic Training

This online via zoom workshop will provide the fundamentals to get started with FreshTrak at your agency. Participants with learn how to administer the intake process using FreshTrak and will be guided on best practices for developing an efficient process in registering your clients. For agencies already using FreshTrak, this workshop will be helpful as a refresher of the basics.

MOFC Food Safety Training

Level 1 Person In Charge

We are excited to announce that MOFC/Agency Services is launching a brand new Person in Charge (Level 1) Food Safety Training developed by Feeding America and ServSafe.

This training is targeted to those who partner with foodbanks and is much more relevant to the work you are doing in your communities.

The new FA Food Safety will be offered, online, at no-cost to your agency AND even more exciting is the fact that once taken and successfully passed, the certification never expires for the person who takes the training!

The following dates and times will be available to choose from:

  • Mon, Nov 6, 10am
  • Tue, Dec 5, 2pm
