The Dublin Food Pantry (DFP) originally began in the 1970’s, in response to those in need of emergency food assistance. Still housed in the Dublin Community Church, DFP became a private, non-profit organization in 2011 to meet the increasing number of Dublin area residents who face the difficult circumstances of a stressful choice: deciding between putting food on the table and purchasing other basic needs.
Thanks to you and the generosity of a giving community, DFP delivered over 150,000 meals last year. The 150 weekly volunteers provided support to our neighbors who endured under-employment, unemployment, disability / health challenges, crisis (death, abandonment, abuse) and severe financial loss. Each year, more than 500 DFP volunteers contribute their hearts, minds and hands to serve those in need. They stock shelves, order food, accept or pick up food deliveries, host special events and even grow community gardens so that families may receive fresh produce each season of the year.
Thank all of you for your continuing support, and come join us when you can, to help those in need.
