Yes! I want to donate $50 per month to help feed my neighbors who struggle to put food on the table for their families. And, because we can count on your monthly support, we can more efficiently plan our budget.
Provided to students at high-risk of going without something to eat over weekends. It's hard to believe but some students go a whole weekend without any food. Help us address this problem.
Sponsor a child - for just $40 a month, for the year (total $480), you can ensure one child receives food every weekend so they don't go without.

Gahanna Community Congregational Church is fighting food insecurity with their community garden project, which was accepted in the OSU Master Gardening Program for 2022. It’s an open invitation to grow! If you’re a Gahanna resident, business, or non-profit you can be part of caring for the gardens - and nearly all the produce will be donated to GRIN.
Several Gahanna businesses have donation boxes at their location. If you find yourself at any of these partner locations and have some extra change, please consider donating.
