About Us


Resource Center

Recognizing that poverty is often accompanied by numerous other basic human needs, the Resource Center (RC) was established in conjunction with the pantry. It connects clients with important resource providers in the community. Many people in need find it helpful to go to one location and be helped with multiple resources.  In the RC, clients can meet with a trained resource counselor to get the help they need. Clients are given brochures and informational pages to take with them.

Contact us by emailing: resourcecenter@worthingtonfoodpantry.org or call 614-407-3863.

You can download the Form online and email it to us to setup a meeting or fill it out in the Pantry during your next visit.  We are open during the Pantry hours (Monday 10 AM - noon, Wednesday 4 PM - 6 PM, and Saturday 10 AM - noon).
