Need Network

The Need Network was born out of a desire to provide food and other life supportive
resources to those in need in our community. It is funded by a variety of grants as well as generous donors in our community and congregation. The food pantry operates through the time and energy of a rotating roster of 50 supervisors and volunteers. Each week volunteers of all ages purchase, hand pack, inventory and distribute boxes of groceries to an average of 200 persons per month. The food pantry is supported by items purchased through the Shared Harvest Food Bank in Fairfield, Ohio.

If you or your group would like to donate or volunteer, please call us at 513.400.6722 and a supervisor will return your call.

Our food pantry services are designed to provide supplemental food
support to community and congregation members in need. It is our
desire to provide food with dignity and care while being good stewards
of the resources we have, both donated and purchased. In the interest of
providing food support for as many persons as possible, we have
established guidelines to meet the needs of our entire community.

A food pantry supervisor will follow up your request with a
confirmation call to provide instructions, answer questions
and give driving directions. Please be advised: if we are
unable to speak to you directly or leave a voicemail, a
food pantry box will not be prepped for you.
