Corpus Christi Food Pantry volunteers, friends and family are once again joining the Freestore Food Bank Hunger Walk and 5K Run on Memorial Day, May 26, 2014 to fight hunger in our community. The Hunger Walk supports more than 275 non-profit pantries of which we are a member. Did you know 1 in 7 people in our community are food insecure? That means almost 300,000 individuals do not know where their next meal is coming from. Our association with the Freestore Food Bank is essential in assisting us to provide food at our pantry for those in need in our community.
Our pastoral area Food Pantry is located at Corpus Christi Church in New Burlington, Ohio. In 2012 we served 2,000 families: 2,652 adults and 2,079 children. We gave out over 90,000 pounds of food. We have over 60 dedicated and caring volunteers from Corpus Christi, St. John Neumann, St. Bartholomew and St. John the Baptist churches that assist every week in the Food Pantry.
Please join us in our fund raising efforts by walking with us or by donating to support us in the walk. You don’t have to be in Cincinnati or join us in the Hunger Walk to support the Food Pantry, simply make a tax deductible donation on this page to support our continued efforts to provide food for those in need in our community.
Thank you in advance for your generosity to help us fight hunger in our community.
