While we love giving a box of food to a family that is struggling with the issues of life, we quickly found that there is a need for food in Preble County. While there are pantries that serve their local communities, there were many families falling between the cracks (due to borders), long qualification processes and donations that were leaving the county. Food 4 Families worked with The Foodbank (Feeding America) to ensure that we could have enough food to treat everyone the same, no matter where they lived in Preble County. We did not want long applications and qualification process and we most certainly wanted ALL donations, and allocations, for Preble County to STAY in Preble County. Our process is simple, our qualifications are straight and we have gained MANY compliments on how we treat everyone the same. We want to help families, not complicate and add to the frustrations of life.
Food 4 Families has went beyond providing food boxes to families and in February 2018 we opened a full food pantry for Preble County!
