In May 2020, the Needy Basket distributed over 40,000 lbs of food to 120 families (385 people). That's an increase of 7% in families served and 67% in food distributed over May 2019, and a year-over-year increase of 23% in families served and 50% in food distributed from Jan-May, 2019 to Jan-May, 2020. In addition, fifty nine citizens and local organizations donated over $19,000 in May to feed hungry families in and around our Tipp City, Monroe Township, and Bethel Township service area. Finally, food donations through May of 2020 are up from 45,412 lbs to 136,897 lbs; a 300 % increase primarily from local businesses and the Shared Harvest food bank. That's a lot of numbers, but just another way of explaining what a generous community we live in! Thank you!


The Meijer Simply Give program, which double matches donations to us up to $5,000, has been delayed, as well as our corresponding Annual Fund Drive.  We'll “officially” start once we hear further from Meijer. In the mean time, we thank you again for your generous donations and will continue to distribute as much food to our neighbors in need as we can. Finally, please remember the other worthy charities and organizations that serve our local communities and donate generously to them as well. Thank you!


Remember, if you need food, we can help!
