Broad Street Food Pantry

Helping neighbors put healthy meals on their tables – providing food for bodies, relief to minds, and nourishment for souls.

  • Every day 30 families choose healthful food including fresh produce, milk and lean protein.
  • From May to October, fresh produce giveaways happen twice a month in the BSPC parking lot.
  • Every month, we offer a variety of nutrition education and cooking classes.
  • Collaborate with  Broad Street Achievement Programs and COMPASS to provide nutrition and meal preparation education.


More than 85% of the food in our pantry is purchased from Mid-Ohio Foodbank or local retailers.  Your cash donations help us fill our shelves with the most nutritious food available.  We welcome donations of unexpired shelf stable foods and fresh produce. Interested in hosting a healthy food drive? Contact Kathy Kelly-Long for details.
