Since 1965, Neighborhood Services, Inc. has been feeding our Columbus neighbors. Today, they are continuing to alleviate the effects of poverty by providing nutritious food to those in need amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, they are feeding 70-75 families a day by preparing food boxes that are picked up at the pantry.


Join Besa and Neighborhood Services, Inc. to ensure all of our neighbors have a wonderfull Thanksgiving! As a volunteer, you'll help distribute Thanksgiving meals, assisting with tasks such as packing produce and frozen turkeys, loading food into cars, directing traffic, and more. Depending on the items, moderate to heavy lifting may be involved. 


Neighborhood Services, Inc. will provide gloves, face masks, and hand sanitizer. Social distancing will be observed. Your temperature will be taken upon arrival. 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 60, or have a chronic health condition, it is in your best interest to stay home. Click here for more information about COVID-19.
