Dayspring Food Pantry
Our Food Pantry History
In 2001, a 69 year-old woman who was a member of Dayspring Community Church asked if she could turn an old storage closet in our kitchen into a food pantry. Her dream ultimately turned into a fully-functioning food pantry that is open weekly at Dayspring, is government regulated through First Link Government Agency, is resourced by the Mid-Ohio Food Bank and Dayspring Community Church, and this past year touched 1200 lives by providing food! To break that down further, the DCC Food Pantry, which is staffed by our own volunteers, gives out approximately 350 pounds of food every month! Recently, Marilyn Guittar, that special woman with a dream, had this to say: “We minister to people when they need it. Oftentimes, we pray on the spot for people as they have need… I think God is using this pantry and us…”
The DCC Food Pantry provides a minimum of 3 meals per day for each family member for 3 days.
