Giant Eagle Makes Giant Donations

In 2015, NNEMAP Food Pantry distributed the equivalent of about 230,000 meals to local families. In just 2 1/2 short months this year, we have already helped our shoppers with over 50,000 meals. Told you we were busy!

So where does all of that food come from? A variety of places–our supporting church network provides about a quarter of the food supply. Most of our fresh produce and shelf-stable product is sourced through the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. A large portion of the remainder comes from our three Giant Eagle partner stores at Neil Ave. and Buttles; Grandview Yard; and Britton Parkway. Here is one day’s delivery of frozen meat–over 800 pounds!

The supermarket chain also donates bread and bakery goods, snack items and assorted canned goods and goodies. NNEMAP typically takes in over a ton of donated food from the stores each week.

If you ever wondered how we do it–there is your answer. We can only do it with the help of the amazing Columbus community. Churches, businesses, partners–we are all in it together, working hard to eliminate hunger in our city.

Feeding Frenzy Continues in February

It has been a pretty mild winter by Columbus standards, but things are definitely heating up for NNEMAP as we settle into the first full calendar year in our new location. After seeing almost 900 shoppers in January, we followed that up with another 864 customer visits in February.

That puts us well ahead of our pace for last year. We have already distributed the equivalent of 42,525 meals to our neighbors in the 43201, 43211 and 43215 ZIP codes. We like to think of this as the sign of excellence:

Apparently our shoppers agree–NNEMAP is the place to be! We are proud to serve our new neighborhood and look forward to bigger and better services in the future. Given the high level of activity in the first two months of the year, we are expecting some March madness. Stay tuned–you know where the action is!

Thanks to Boulevard Presbyterian Youth: Soup’s On!

NNEMAP sends out a big thank you to the K-12 kids from Boulevard Presbyterian Church. The youth assembled 130 bean soup mix packages to distribute to our customers.
Bean Soup MixEach mix makes a pot of soup big enough to serve 8-10 people. That’s 1300 meals for local families! As soon as we could stock our shelves, the soup mixes were going out in grocery bags. Of the 130 prepackaged mixes donated, there are exactly zero left. None. Zip. Nada.
You get the picture–this stuff is popular. If you think you can top that total and feed more families, contact us for instructions on how to make your soup mix assembly a smashing success!
