Details:

The NNEMAP Food Pantry is one of the largest food pantries in Franklin County. In addition to food, NNEMAP Food Pantry provides basic personal care items like bath tissue, soap and dental hygiene products. They also act as an access point for services such as SNAP (Food Stamp) eligibility screening and enrollment. As a member of the Mid-Ohio Food Collective, the pantry distributed over 1 million pounds of food to neighbors across Columbus! in 2019 alone!

 

Join Besa and the NNEMAP Food Pantry to help provide food to our neighbors in crisis. As a volunteer, you'll assist with pantry activities, including unloading food, stocking the pantry, packing food boxes and other tasks as needed. 

 

NNEMAP Food Pantry will provide gloves, face masks, and provide hand sanitizer. Volunteers will also socially distance. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival. Limited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

The health and safety of volunteers is a priority. If you are sick, over the age of 50, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
