About the Pantry
The Hilliard Food Pantry is operated by the Hilliard Community Assistance Council (HCAC), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. It is managed by a volunteer board of not more than eleven members. There are two full-time employees for the pantry.
In 2020, the Hilliard Food Pantry saw 8845 visits from families in our community. Families are eligible to receive a 5 day supply of food twice a month.
Where does the food come from?
The majority of the food we receive comes from Mid-Ohio Food Collective or one of its sources. Donations secured are used to purchase food for pennies per pound through the foodbank.
We pick up fresh produce, frozen meat, bakery, and other donations from Aldi, GFS, Meijer, Giant Eagle, Target and Kroger. These grocery stores are doing their best to limit waste and provide support for our community.
We also accept non-perishable food, hygiene items, and garden produce from individuals or food drives.
