The Fresh Food Distribution is a cooperative effort between St. Paul’s; Emanuel Lutheran Church, Marion, Ohio;Trinity Lutheran, Marion, Ohio; St. Paul’s Lutheran in Marion, and a number of other local churches and the Lutheran Social Services and Mid-Ohio Food Bank .  About 10,000 pounds of produce along with other donated items are available.  The Fresh Food Distribution occurs once per month.

From April through October we are at St. Paul’s on the first Friday of the month.  For the duration of the Covid crisis we will be distributing food at our winter location:

Winter Location:  All Occasions , 6989 Waldo Delaware Road, Waldo, Ohio.

 2019 – 2020 Food Distribution Schedule:

Fresh Produce Distribution on Friday, October 2,  2020 at All Occasions from 11:00 AM to 2:00 PM. The Fresh Produce Distribution will still take place but with two changes. First the food will be prepackaged and placed into each person’s car trunk so as to minimize contact. Everyone will stay in their cars. Second, the distribution will take place at All Occasions, 6989 Waldo Delaware Road, Waldo, Ohio.

All Occasions is located .7 mile south of the center of Waldo,  just past Route 47 on the right.
