Twice a week we offer groceries and household items to our neighbors in the community. We serve hundreds of families and are proud members of Shared Harvest Food Bank.
We are open Tuesdays & Thursdays from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM at The Oaks Community Church - Upper Level: 103 McKnight Drive, Middletown, OH 45044.
Our mission is to bring renewal to our city by providing wrap-around care & compassion to under-resourced people and inviting them into a restful & rooted community of believers.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in.” Matthew 25:35
“In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said,‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35

HOW YOU CAN HELP
As Food Pantry volunteers, we have the privilege of seeing God's work in action as we freely give what He has provided. Everyone is welcome to volunteer with us. You do not have to be a member of our church or any church. Adult supervision is required for children under 16.
We accept unopened, unexpired food and household goods. These can be dropped off in the church lobby during Sunday Services or dropped off to our food pantry, on the upper level, Tuesdays & Thursdays from 9:00 AM to 7:00 PM. You can also arrange for us to pick up your donation by emailing us.
Pray For Us
We believe in the power of prayer and greatly appreciate prayers for our ministry and especially for the people we serve.
