Food Pantry Update Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)

With the risk of COVID-19 exposure remaining high and cold weather months approaching, the Feeding Hope Food Pantry will be changing to the distribution of pre-packed bags ONLY starting in November and until further notice on Tuesdays from 9:30-10:30am. We are sorry we will not be able to offer you a choice in what you receive.

Patrons arriving by car:
Please stay in your vehicle and follow the line of traffic through the upper parking lot on Union Street. We will ask you to remain in your vehicle as we put pre-packed bags of food items in your trunk. Before coming to the pantry, please clear enough space in your trunk to receive bags. We plan to include shelf stable items and the following as available: produce, meat, dairy, and bakery.

Patrons arriving on foot:
There are two options:

  • Receive a pre-packed bag of food outside in the Feeding Hope Food Pantry parking lot on Tuesdays, 9:30-10:30am.
  • Call 2-1-1 and ask about having food delivered to your home for free by DoorDash. 2-1-1 (United Way) will schedule free delivery of food from the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank or a local food pantry.

Canned and boxed food will be pre-packaged and distributed by family size. Refrigerated items, including dairy, will also be distributed based on family size.
