Next Pantry Date: Tuesday, June 9

The Hearth is CLOSED until Tuesday, June 9. If you need food now, please visit We plan to continue our outdoor pantry service at East Dayton Christian Church. Please follow all signage and the directions of Hearth Pantry volunteers. If you arrive by car, STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE and our volunteers will bring your groceries out to you.  A maximum of THREE HOUSEHOLDS can be served per car. Ensure your car has space for groceries as our volunteers cannot move personal items. Pedestrians and bus riders will be served on the side of the church.


Our Mission

We are dedicated to eradicating hunger in our area.

Over half of Dayton children live in poverty. In near neighborhoods, two out of every three children live in poverty. Because of these sobering realities, a 2016 report ranked Dayton the second hungriest city in the nation for families with children.

We provide meat, dairy, bread, non-perishable items, and (in the summer months) fresh produce. Through our partnership with East Dayton Christian Church, the Food Bank of Dayton, Schwebel’s Bakery, and the Dayton Phoenix Group, we serve individuals and families eligible for the Federal Emergency Food Assistant Program.

Our fully “client choice” model empowers food recipients to select items within each major food group that best fits their household’s unique needs.

More than food, we share encouragement, warmth, and community.
