Through many partnerships, Kirkersville United Methodist Church (KUMC) provides a place for hungry neighbors in Licking County to receive a diverse cornucopia of food—nutritious produce, baked goods, and non-perishable items. Organizations, food recipients, and volunteers gather every Wednesday at 9:00am from March thru November.
Licking County’s Food Pantry Network delivers a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables. Every week is an adventure. A delivery one week may consist of potatoes, peppers, cucumbers, corn, apples, onions, and watermelons, while another week it may consist of plantains, Chayote, lettuce, tomatoes, zucchini, honeydew, and Harry & David treats.
Kroger, Taylor & Main in Reynoldsburg, supplies an array of baked goods as well, such as fresh Italian loaves, sandwich breads, dinner rolls, cupcakes, muffins, cakes, and cookies.
Block’s Bagels in Bexley donates dozens of fresh bagels. They include plain, sesame, poppy seed, onion, blueberry, whole wheat, pumpernickel, and so many other varieties.
DYOGI’s Saturday yoga class at KUMC contributes non-perishable pantry food items. Sample donations include coconut milk, Goya items, canned fruit and vegetables, macaroni & cheese, packaged cookies, oatmeal, cereal, snack bars, cake mixes, etc.
Finally, friendly church volunteers help sort, distribute, and carry items for recipients.
Thanks to KUMC, the Licking County Food Pantry Network, Kroger, Block’s Bagels, DYOGI, and volunteers working together for all, hungry neighbors who are going through difficult times and are in need have access to food.
