Agape Distribution hosts one of the largest Free Grocery Stores in the state of Ohio. We serve about 85 families daily, each receiving about 75 lbs. of groceries of their choosing at no charge.
Qualifying income is determined by Job & Family services at poverty 100%, see form. Each month over 500,000 lbs. of groceries are distributed to the hungry is our region.
This is accomplished at an incredible 2009 cost of $3.62 per person served! One dollar ($1.00) donated to the food pantry will yield an incredible $28.00 in groceries. Donations for the Food Pantry may be made to Agape Distribution and memoed, "Food Pantry".
June through September are the times of greatest need! In the summer months children are home from school and no longer receive school breakfasts and lunches. In September, the cost of school supplies for children too often creates a difficult choice between these supplies and food. This plus the softening economy is driving more people than ever to ask for help from their local food pantry. Your help during these times is greatly appreciated.
Asking for help is humbling! Once registered,our grocery shoppers receive a Food Pantry Shopper card securing their free membership. Families check in, take a shopping cart selecting the items they like. Quantities are limited but a nutritionally balanced diet is freely available.
