Give and Take has provided food distribution for 20 years. We have adjusted our days and times over the years. For years we have the food pantry serve 2 times a month. We are only 1 of 2 pantries in our county that serves on a Saturday. We have had up to 42 families of those Saturdays. Our clients are young families, large families, senior citizens, veterans, disabled, families that are blended and helping the older generation of their family, LGBTQ, and occasionally the homeless. Our biggest challenge is having enough food on those pantry days to serve all the families. We do not have enough refrigerators or freezers to have enough fresh produce or frozen meats to meet the needs of the clients. We try to help with personal need items but they are hard to find and afford in the numbers that we need.

Want an email when this food pantry updates their hours or other information?
Please call 937/594-0756 before you come. The pantry is located inside the Community Thrift Store, so pantry personnel is not always on site.
ProducePedia is a free resource that covers the types of fresh produce that can be delivered to food pantries. Each entry includes information on color, taste, and possible uses. People unfamiliar with the vegetable or fruit will learn how to use it, and those who are familiar with it still might learn a fun fact or two!
The Cooperative Extension sites have a wealth of information for any backyard gardener. Once you go to the site (each one if very different from the others) look for a link for “homes and gardens”, “landscape”, “consumer horticulture”, etc. to find information on improving your backyard garden. Neighboring state sites may offer information your own state’s site lacks.
