We deliver groceries to families in the New Albany Plain Local School District (NAPLS) on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. Families can make an appointment to visit the pantry on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month to shop thru and select items they need. Anyone that lives in the NAPLS school district is eligible to receive food.
Emergency help is available for anyone that is in immediate need of food. If you do not live in the NAPLS school district we will assist you in finding a food pantry in your area.
