Galion City Schools seeks volunteers for mobile food pantry program


Staff Report



GALION — Galion City Schools, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio, is looking for community volunteers to help distribute food to families in need during upcoming Mobile Food Pantry events on June 30, July 20, Aug. 11, and Sept. 8. The total time commitment will be approximately 2.5 hours per pantry from 3 to 5:30 p.m.

Interested individuals are asked to fill out the volunteer pre-registration form – https://forms.gle/FngUZGijE14B7PQ49 – to pre-register for this volunteer opportunity.

Students 16-18 years of age are welcome with an accompanied adult. Second Harvest Mobile Food Pantry feeds over 500 families in our community, many of them with students who attend Galion City Schools.

“We have been very fortunate to have the support of the service men and women from the Ohio National Guard since the beginning of this program,” Galion City Schools School Social Worker Kirstie Naumoff said. “As their mission is coming to an end, we are now looking for community support to run our monthly mobile food pantry.”

For more information regarding this volunteer opportunity, please contact Naumoff at 419-468-3676, ext. 14301 or email naumoff.kirstie@moesc.net. Funding for this initiative was provided in part by the City of Galion.
