Summer Food Shortages Are a Real Problem!

Imagine how difficult it would be to tell a mother of three that you can only give them enough food for one or one and a half days because the food supply has dried up.

When school is out and families are busy, food donations drop to their lowest level. For the Aurora Food Pantry — a part of the Volunteers of America Greater Ohio — summers are the worst time of the year.

How Can You Help

It’s easy to participate in the Fill a Bag, Feed a Family program. On April 22nd over a hundred volunteers will drop off an empty food bag on the doorstep of every residence in our community. On April 29th, volunteers will return to pick up the bags of food and take them to a local warehouse where the food will be inspected, sorted and stored.

We need you to volunteer to help deliver or retrieve the bags, or help sort and store the food. This program can only work when people like you donate just 2 hours on either the bag delivery day or food pick-up day.
