Food Security (n) : knowing where your next meal is going to come from

Of the tens of thousands residents in the Dayton Area, 17% of them lack food security. This number includes almost 40,000 children. That’s 40,000 who don’t ask their parents what they’re having for dinner, but instead ask if they’re having dinner.

At Good Neighbor House, we work hard to help families in need. Our pantry serves hundreds of people per week, and that number just keeps growing! In the past year, traffic through the pantry has increased by 40%.

That’s why we need you to help fill the pantry. Right now, Good Neighbor House pantry is in dire need of the following items:

  • Canned goods (especially beans)
  • Pasta
  • Pasta sauce
  • Soups

Our drop-off sites are

  • Good Neighbor House
  • Kettering Seventh-day Adventist Church
  • Miamisburg Seventh-day Adventist Church
  • Centerville Seventh-day Adventist Church
  • SouthBrook Christian Church
