NNEMAP Food Pantry has been experiencing the “joys of ownership” since moving into our first permanent facility in 2015. Our humble abode at 677 E. 11th Avenue is definitely a step up from our church basement days. Still, after living here for a few years, we noticed a few things could use a little sprucing up.
Thanks to the generous support of the Richard H. and Ann Shafer Fund, NNEMAP was awarded a $50,000 capital grant from The Columbus Foundation. We’ve got a few items that need upgraded and a couple of things that are going to make our service to the community even better.
Like so many other organizations in Central Ohio, we are extremely grateful and appreciative of the assistance from The Columbus Foundation. Thank you for being such a tremendous asset to the community and a great friend of NNEMAP Food Pantry! Nothing like an early Christmas present!
