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. 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! Each year, NNEMAP distributes gifts to over 1,000 youth ages 17 and younger through the annual Holiday Gift Shoppe. 


Join Besa and the NNEMAP Food Pantry to deck the halls of the Holiday Gift Shoppe! As a volunteer, you'll assist decorating the Gift Shoppe in preparation for shoppers. Activities may include: unloading decorations from the truck, stringing lights, hanging decorations, and more! Heavy lifting may be required.


Face masks are required to be worn at all times. Social distancing will be observed. Masks and gloves are available upon request. No client interaction will take place during this volunteer event.
