Details:

The New Salem Bread of Life Food Pantry is dedicated to serving the Linden community with the highest quantity and quality food, and with dignity and respect. The pantry is continuing to serve the community to the best of their ability amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Currently, they are feeding dozens of families a week by preparing food boxes that are picked up at the pantry.

 

Join Besa and New Salem Bread of Life Food Pantry to help provide food to our neighbors in crisis. As a volunteer, we'll help unload food supplied by the Mid-Ohio Foodbank and organize it in the pantry. Depending on the items being unloaded, moderate to heavy lifting may be involved. 

 

New Salem Bread of Life Food Pantry will provide gloves and face masks. The pantry is small, but we'll try our best to practice social distancing. No 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.
