Free Food Pantry in Toledo Supported by Donations and Volunteers

This Free Food Pantry is Supported by Donations and Volunteers


Our free food pantry serves through the generous donations of sponsors and the work of volunteers, most of whom are previous food pantry guests.

Volunteers Are Welcome at Our Free Food Pantry

Free Food pantry volunteers help us unload donations, stock our shelves, assist guests with free food selection, even cook meals to serve our guests on Sunday morning and Wednesday evening.

When taken together, every gift of time and effort shared by our free food pantry volunteers adds up . “What is an ocean but a multitude of drops?” Volunteers individually help in small ways that return big benefits for guests as well as themselves.

If “No man is an island”, but we are all connected by the bridges we build then it is also true that, “Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others, past and present, and by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
