"No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted." - Aesop.

Today was extra special for me at the food pantry. After introducing myself to a client, we asked her how she was doing. She responded with "I'm frustrated." During our shopping time, we joked and laughed together. During our good-byes, I wished her with a "I hope you day gets better." She hugged me and said that it already has. We, as volunteers, were able to change people's lives with our kindness ... in less than 10 minutes.

Great event

I thought the event was well organized and ran smoothly. Our volunteer leader was very friendly and fun. The only thing that would be considered negative was Carla. She seemed inconvenienced and irritated by us. Several times she was snappy with the volunteer leader. I still give it 5 stars and would go again bc we met some really nice people there!

First Time

Besa takes the guess work out of volunteering. They make it so easy to give back and find a place to do so. The group leader at the Broad Street Food Pantry was amazing! She explained the process very well and even let me observe how it was done first to get me out of my shell. I can't wait to go back.

My experience at the Broad Street Food Pantry was very rewarding. The folks shopping at the pantry were in good spirits and appreciative of the hard working volunteers. I could talk to people about food, recipes, and menu planning all day. I'll definitely be back.

Provide Food to Our Neighbors in Crisis

Date: May 26 | Time: 8:30 am - 11:30 am

Venue: Food Pantry at Broad Street Presbyterian Church

Address:
760 E Broad Street
Columbus, OH 43205

Details:

The Broad Street Food Pantry is helping neighbors put healthy meals on their tables – providing food for bodies, relief to minds, and nourishment for souls. The pantry is continuing to serve the community to the best of their ability amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, they are feeding 40-45 families a day by preparing food boxes that are picked up at the pantry.

 

Join Besa and Broad Street Food Pantry to help provide food to our neighbors in crisis. As a volunteer, we'll pack food boxes and deliver them to vehicles. Limited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. 

 

Broad Street Food Pantry will provide gloves, face masks and we'll also practice social distancing. If you have your own gloves, face mask and/or hand sanitizer please feel free to bring it/use your own. 

 

Ohio’s current stay-at-home order permits people to continue helping neighbors. Healthy and willing volunteers are needed now more than ever, especially to feed the hungry. While we have many neighbors in need, we must each take care of ourselves first. If you are a vulnerable population—an older adult, a cancer patient, live with asthma, etc.—please stay home. If you have traveled out of the country recently, please stay home. If you feel sick or exhibit any symptoms of the virus as shared by the CDC—fever, coughing or shortness of breath—please stay home. 

 

  • 14 is the minimum age required and all minors must be accompanied by an adult.

  • Please note: This project takes place both indoors and outdoors. Wearing layers and comfortable clothing is encouraged

  • Closed-toe shoes are required. 

  • Moderate to heavy lifting will be involved. Limited client interaction will take place during this volunteer event. 
  • Parking is available in the surface lot behind the church.

  • Unfortunately, this event is not ADA accessible. 
  • Court-appointed volunteering: At this time, we can not accept court-appointed requests.
