Each Thursday morning the Food Pantry, provides up to ten families with three days worth of meals. These families were referred to us by Hands on Central Ohio (First Link). The Food Pantry also provided help for Brookwood families in need. In addition to the congregation, Bishop Hartley High School, Bexley Education Association and Columbus Academy helped to keep our food pantry stocked. Bishop Hartley held their annual food drive during Lent which yielded 2400+ food items plus monetary donations. These food and monetary donations Bishop Hartley raised were used to help stock our food pantry throughout the year. Donations of food and money from our generous congregation saw us through the long and hot summer months. In the fall our Pantry was blessed another generous donation: 1700+ food items from a food drive coordinated by Columbus Academy. We are grateful for the support and thoughtfulness of these schools and individuals in our community.
