Street ministry serves  
homeless and needy
households in community
Epworth's food pantry provides 3-days worth of
emergency food to folks Monday through
Thursday each week. Eligible households can
earn no more than 200% of the federal poverty
level (
see table).

If you qualify to use the pantry, make an
appointment by calling 211. That's HandsOn
Central Ohio, the resources clearinghouse for
Franklin County. HandsOn will send your
information to Epworth, then an Epworth
representative will call you to arrange a time to
pick up your food. You may use the pantry twice
each month. The pantry serves an average of 49
families monthly.
Since 2013, Epworth has taken to the streets every
Thursday with its mobile food market to distribute food
to needy households in the community. During 2017, the
ministry delivered 19.5 tons of fresh food to an average
of 600 people every month.

The mobile market operates within the boundaries of Rt.
161 on the north, Oakland Park on the south, Cleveland
Ave. on the east, and I-71 on the west. Eligible
households are limited to earning no more than 200% of
the federal poverty level (
see table above).
Produce markets offer local households fresh food
Epworth offers fresh produce markets to the
community from April through October. During 2018,
the markets will occur on the second Tuesday
afternoon of each month, except in June. They'll be
in Epworth's north parking lot, rain or shine.

The markets are open to any household which earns
no more than 200% of the federal poverty level (
). Please bring containers or bags with you to
carry your food home.

In 2017, Epworth distributed 29.5 tons of produce
during the 6 markets. More than 5,400 people were
served during that time, also.
