Pop-UP-date

by Janice Rook

The Pop Up Pantry team delivered food directly to clients and their families at the following agency sites during the month of February:

  • February 3: Commons at Livingston-40 clients
  • February 17: Southpoint Village Apartments-35 clients
  • February 24: Commons at Grant-30 clients
  • February 26: Hope Recovery Services-30 clients

Monthly totals for 2021:

  • January       144
  • February     135

Our recent survey of the Pop Up Pantry’s agency sites identified the need for personal care items.  In an attempt to address these needs, diapers were distributed to families at Southpoint Village Apartments.  Masks and hand sanitizer were provided to clients at Hope Recovery Services. Additionally, coats and winter clothes were donated to Hope by the Trading Post and the Mat Makers provided six sleeping mats for some of their clients who are homeless.

Inclement weather required adjustments to our weekly Wednesday schedule in February. However, we were still able to deliver food to all four of our current agency sites. With the exception of one week, the Pop Up Pantry team has continued to bag food outside in spite of the cold and snowy weather this winter.  Our volunteers have become real cold weather warriors!  We’re grateful for their perseverance and dedication to our clients.

We are looking forward to spring and planning for expansion of the Pop Up Pantry when it is safe to do so based on pandemic guidance.  We continue to be blessed by the opportunity to serve clients in their local communities and for the ongoing support of the H2H leadership.

Hangry Partnership

Hangry will host a food drive for Heart to Heart food pantry on Saturday, March 20,   

The goal is to have all of you put together your own food collection group with your friends, families, coworkers, etc. Then on March 20th, you make your way down to see us and fill up our box truck with your donations!

Unable to make it on March 20th but still want to support the food drive? You can make a donation for us to purchase food on your behalf. All of the funds raised through that special link will go directly to purchase food for the Heart to Heart food pantry.

Let’s see what kind of impact we can make together for those living with the issue of hunger in our community.

Requested items:

  • Canned hearty soups
  • Canned vegetables (not beans)
  • Boxed side dishes

Welcome Yohan

Please join us in welcoming Yohan Kim to the Heart to Heart team. Yohan will join us part-time as a Volunteer Coordinator beginning March 1. We are grateful to have him and hope everyone gets a chance to meet him soon!

Yohan will spend the first couple of weeks on the job observing operations as they currently run. He will get to know individuals, especially those of you who volunteer with us regularly. He will work to improve volunteer communication.

To begin, Yohan will work Monday, Wednesday and Friday. His schedule is not set in stone, and will change over time as it becomes more evident when his presence is needed.

Over time, Yohan will help us develop standardized procedures for things like volunteer registration and check-in. Together, we will develop a volunteer orientation procedure. We will hold regular volunteer meetings, as we did on February 16.

Yohan is excited to get started and hoping to make some genuine improvements to the volunteer experience. We are glad he has joined our team. Thank you for your patience as he learns the ropes and gets to know everyone. This is a new position for Heart to Heart and it will take some time for things to get settled.

COVID-19 Policy

We are asking all volunteers to review our COVID-19 Policy. Please do not come in if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness, and please give us as much notice as possible.

Meeting Notes

  • We have discontinued Direct Retail Pickups from GFS and Target.
    • Target times were inconvenient and often the product we received was not usable. These donations have been taken over by Christ N Us Ministries OCC, with whom Heart to Heart has previously worked.
    • GFS donations were in serving sizes too large for our clients to take. They have been redirected to a chef that volunteers to cook meals for those in need.
  • A donor has offered a regular monthly donation of a large amount of meat. We are researching how we will receive and store this meat on a regular basis. A refrigerated truck was considered but was determined to be too expensive. We are also looking into whether or not they’d be able to donate fish instead of beef or pork. Several of our clients do not eat pork or beef.
  • A small task force has been formed to discuss the future challenges facing Heart to Heart. This task force will raise questions to be addressed by the church’s Strategic Planning group.
    • It is obvious we have outgrown the space inside the Annex to operate Heart to Heart in the future. The task force will investigate future locations and improvements that need to be made to accommodate changes.
    • As we resume outdoor operations in the warmer weather, the task force will evaluate what does and does not work. Processes will be evaluated and revised as necessary.
  • The Refugee Task Force has started a Pop-Up Pantry using the existing group’s model. They will provide groceries to the Riverview International Center on the second Friday of every month. This past Friday, they served 20 families.
  • Yohan Kim introduced himself as our new part-time Volunteer Coordinator (see “Welcome Yohan”).
  • We discussed the new volunteer check-in procedure (see “Note to Volunteers”), and the new PPE provided to us (see below).

Pop UPdate

In January, our Pop-Up Pantry team delivered food directly to clients and their families at the following agency sites:

  • January 6:    Commons at Livingston-40 clients
  • January 13:   Hope Recovery Services-40 clients
  • January 20:  Southpoint Village Apartments-34 clients
  • January 27:  Commons at Grant-30 clients

January Total:      144

This month, the Pop-Up Pantry team conducted a survey of our agency site contacts to obtain feedback on the needs of their clients.  Among the responses, the need for personal hygiene and cleaning supplies was identified. From time to time, our team members have made personal donations of items such as shampoo and soaps to add to our delivering food from the pantry.  However, based on the survey results we are planning to explore ways to better address these needs for our clients on an ongoing basis.  We are grateful to our agency site coordinator, Kitty Rohrer, for gathering this feedback and forging positive working relationships with our agency contacts.

We continue to be blessed by the opportunity to serve clients in their local communities and for the ongoing support of the Heart to Heart leadership

New PPE for Volunteers

We have been provided new PPE by Franklin County Emergency Management and Homeland Security. Volunteers will have access to these materials when working at Heart to Heart.

We are asking all volunteers to double mask as they are able. If you come to volunteer with a cloth face mask, we will provide a disposable mask to wear underneath it while you are here.

Alternatively, volunteers will have access to plastic face shields. These were received unassembled through the FCEMHS program. Directions for assembly and sterilization are available at volunteer check-in, and online here.

Changes Made and Coming

  • Wednesday morning Pre-Shop shifts have been canceled. The Wednesday evening crew is typically well-staffed enough to do the grocery bagging during their pantry service shift.
  • Donation Drop-offs are accepted in the kitchen of the main church building. Please drive down the alleyway and enter through the kitchen door.
  • Any volunteers needing confirmation of hours served for a community service program should contact hearttoheart@fcchurch.com for verification through online forms or a letter. A blank community service form for this purpose can be found online here.
  • Soon volunteers will be required to check-in for their shift using an online form on one of our iPads. The form includes COVID-19 policy and tracking information, photo and social media agreements, and a minor waiver (if appropriate). Signing in electronically will help us better manage our contact tracing for COVID-19. We also hope to better manage our volunteer communications using this tool. The iPads will be cleaned with a UV sanitizer daily in an effort to decrease the spread of germs.

Changes Made and Changes Coming

If you follow us on social media or have been in to volunteer this past week, you know major changes have been made! Most notably, our rented outdoor tents were removed from the parking lot and we have taken over much of the space on the first floor of the main church building (1320 Cambridge). Here’s what this means for you:

  • Those dropping off direct retail pickups (or any other material donations) should drive up the alleyway beside the church and enter through the back kitchen door. There is a weigh station there and blank pickup forms in the kitchen for your use.
  • The “pantry” is now located in Brownlee Hall. The stocking shift volunteers will bring in and sort the foods by category onto the tables set up around the perimeter of the room.
  • Pre-shoppers then take the grocery carts around the room and bag groceries for families. The bags are stored along the hallway between Brownlee Hall and the Crane Welcome Center.
  • The nook outside the Burkhart center is functioning as our makeshift drug store, where we store our non-food items like diapers and toothpaste. During pantry service hours, clients can let the volunteers know what they need from this area and it can be quickly retrieved for them.
  • The parking lot is closed off for general parking during our service hours, as the drive-thru now extends through the entire lot, to keep the waiting cars off the road. Please avoid the parking lot during the service times plus clean up: Tuesdays and Thursdays 8-1 pm and Wednesdays 3:30 – 8 pm.
  • During preschool hours, volunteers are asked to please park away from the old receptionist area (wooden doors facing Cambridge Ave). to allow families to drop off their children at this entrance.

All volunteers should sign in at the Crane Welcome Center, following the same COVID-19 protocol we have been using. The doors will be open for use by H2H Volunteers:

  • Mon 7:30 am to 1:30 pm
  • Tue 7:30 am to 1:30 pm
  • Wed 2:30 pm to 8:30 pm
  • Thu 7:30 am to 1:30 pm

This move is a work-in-progress and likely, more changes will be made as we figure out how to best use the space. We will keep you updated here on the blog and via social media.

Happy New Year!

In December, our Pop-Up Pantry team delivered food directly to clients and their families at the following agency sites:

  • December 2:   Southpoint Village Apartments-38 clients
  • December 9:   Hope Recovery Services-25 clients
  • December 16: Commons at Grant-25 clients

Since its start in July 2020, the Pop-Up Pantry served 748 clients and families. Totals served by month include:

  •      December   88
  •      November  144
  •      October      151
  •      September 144
  •      August        123
  •      July              98

This month we provided food to a new agency site, Hope Recovery Services. Hope is a new grassroots organization in the Hilltop area that serves as an outreach resource center to assist clients recovering from addiction.  The agency Director expressed much gratitude for our efforts and the opportunity for their clients to receive this food.

Our team had a productive meeting with Heart to Heart staff in December to discuss plans for expansion of the Pop-Up Pantry’s outreach initiative.  While a framework for expansion was outlined during the meeting, we recommended waiting until a later date to implement any expansion due to the current pandemic surge.

Our dedicated Pop-Up Pantry team has done an outstanding job throughout the year in planning and implementing this outreach initiative for Heart to Heart. We are grateful for their dedication and teamwork.  We look forward to the new year and the opportunity to further Heart to Heart’s ministry in helping to meet the needs of clients with food insecurity within the Columbus community.
