Help Stop Hunger
Your donation to Needy
Basket will help supply emergency food to those who need it now and all year long. Serving Tipp City, Bethel & Monroe Townships
This is the Needy Basket report for August, 2020:

 

If your family is hungry, we can help. We give food away. Call us (937-667-1977), check us out online (needybasket.org), or stop by our food pantry in Tipp City when we're open:

 

Monday: 10:00 AM to Noon

Wednesday: 10:00 AM to Noon

Thursday: 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM *

 

* The Thursday hours of operation are new!

In August, the Needy Basket served 80 client families comprised of 258 people. To do that, we distributed approximately 20,000 lbs of food. We also received over 10,000 lbs of donated food from our Shared Harvest Food Bank partner and over 800 lbs of food from local individuals, businesses, and churches. If you know families that are struggling, please tell them about us or suggest they call us. If they live in Tipp City, Monroe Township, or Bethel Township and meet the income requirements of 230% of the poverty level by family size, we can help. There's a tab on our web page with the exact numbers.

 

Holiday Program planning has begun! Here are the basics:

 

October 15: Families start registering to receive Holiday “Baskets” comprised of fixin's for a turkey dinner (families of 1-2 people will receive a small ham), age and gender appropriate toys for kid's from 1-10, years old, and gift cards for kids 11-17 years old. Call the pantry at (937) 667-1977 or stop by at 330 S. Fifth St, Tipp City, during our open hours (above) to register.


December 1: The registration period ends because we need to finalize and place food orders and pack everything up for about 215 families.

 

December 17-19: Someone from each family will pick-up their Holiday “Basket” at the pantry. The actual process (times, days) will be finalized in November. This is a change from previous years, when volunteers would deliver to each family's home, because of the COVID-19 situation.

 

Thanks to all of our supporters who generously donate and help our friends and families in need!

 

 

Remember, if you need food, we can help!
