Our Process to receive Food Assistance

Clients must live within the Groveport-Madison School District area.

Clients are required to call our phone system 614-836-7652 and leave their name and phone number before NOON on Tuesday. A volunteer will return your call to get family information and to make an appointment.

Distribution occurs every Thursday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm by APPOINTMENT ONLY.

Clients doing shopping must provide a government-issued ID AND a copy of a current utility bill each time they visit the pantry.

You will have 15 minutes to select your items which will provide approximately 5 days (15 meals) of food for your family. A volunteer will walk along to assist you. We offer a CHOICE PANTRY SYSTEM, which means you select, per section, the items you need and like on a point system, based on your family size.

If you make an appointment that you are unable to keep, you MUST contact us before 6:00 pm on the day of your appointment. Failure to contact us will result in your having to wait 30 days before rescheduling.

You can visit our pantry every 30 days for assistance.
