On-site pantry traffic update

To create less disruption for our amazing neighbors in Grove City, we will be changing the traffic pattern for customers visiting the Kroger Community Food Pantry at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank on Saturday, November 21st. Customers will be asked to turn into the parking lot of the Southwestern City Schools administrative building at 3805 Marlane Drive. Traffic will then line up in the School District’s parking lot and will be released to exit onto Brookham Drive when space opens in the Foodbank parking lot. We believe that this will alleviate traffic backups and allow us to serve everyone in an orderly fashion. Thank you to all for following these guidelines, and thank you to the South-Western City Schools for being great neighbors and partners.

GPS: Line starts at 3805 Marlane Dr, Grove City, OH 43123Coming from I-71 @ Stringtown Road – Head west on Stringtown Road, and take a right turn on Marlane Dr.
Continue north on Marlane Dr. past Brookham Dr. to the Southwestern City Schools entrance at 3805 Marlane Dr.
Turn left into the parking lot and follow the cars to a left turn onto Brookham Dr. to the front of the on-site pantry at Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

On-Site Pantry Holiday Hours

Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s on-site Kroger Community Food Pantry will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 26th; Friday, November 27th; and Saturday, November 28th. The pantry will resume regularly scheduled operating hours on Tuesday, December 1st at 8:30 a.m. Have a safe, healthy, and happy holiday, neighbors!

Change in process at the Kroger Community Food Pantry

The health and well-being of our customers, volunteers and staff are top priorities for us here at the Foodbank.  To that end and due to the most recent coronavirus updates, the Kroger Community Food Pantry will move from its current shopping model to pre-packaged boxes, beginning Thursday, March 12, 2020 until further notice.

Upon arrival to the Foodbank’s parking lot, every vehicle will be given a number and asked to park in an orderly fashion.  A volunteer or staff member will conduct registration at the vehicle and a pre-packaged box will be delivered.  There is no need for you to get out of your vehicle as the food box will be brought directly to you.  In the interest of keeping human contact to an absolute minimum, what the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) calls “social distancing,” we believe that this is the safest course of action to take moving forward, especially during these challenging times. Effective June 2nd, all customers are welcome to visit the Pantry for a full shop every week. 


  • Monday – Closed for stocking, sorting, and packing
  • Tuesday – 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
  • Wednesday – 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m. AND 5 p.m.-7 p.m.
  • Thursday – 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
  • Friday – 8:30 a.m.-12 p.m.
  • Saturday – 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
  • Sunday – Closed for stocking, sorting, and packing

In case of inclement or severe weather, the Kroger Community Food Pantry may delay opening, pause service, or close early, as the pantry is currently operating with a drive-in model. If weather delays or pauses food service, entry to the pantry parking lot will remain closed until lightning or other severe weather subsides and we are able to safely distribute food.

We so appreciate your understanding and cooperation as we all look out for one another during this public health threat and as this situation continues to unfold.  Thank you.


The health and well-being of our customers, volunteers and staff are top priorities for us here at the Foodbank.

This page will be updated daily with recent news, resources, and procedures as new discoveries and announcements are made about the coronavirus (COVID-19) as they relate to our work here at Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
