Emergency Food Pantry Always Open, Increases Access from Once per Month to Twice
Highland County Community Action has always provided an emergency food pantry for struggling families. It is open the same hours our services are accessible: Monday-Friday from 7:30am to 4:30pm.
Households can apply in person with household member information and self-declared income. We encourage bringing documentation to assist in completing additional applications that might prove beneficial to the household.
The agency provides roughly enough food for each person for three days for three basic meals. Our goal is to help stretch those already tight food budgets to meet a family’s nutritional needs more fully. We are here to provide assistance and seek to ensure those in need are served.
While the program typically allows access once per household each thirty days, we have increased access to twice. A household in need will be allowed access once every two weeks from now until the current state of emergency is lifted by Governor Mike DeWine. We know that food should not be a worry for families and individuals during this time.
The food pantry provides 3 meals per household member for a 3 day supply of food. Applicants must be residents of Highland County and have a gross income under 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines . Applicants may receive food pantry assistance no more than once a month and only once within a 30 day period.
Applicants for assistance are required to provide:
- Proof of residency in Highland County
- Picture ID
And are asked to provide the following:
- Social Security Cards for all household members
- Most recent 13 weeks of income information for all household members
- Proof of citizenship
If you or your organization would like to help through the donation of food or have a food drive please contact Christi Hauke of the Highland County Community Action 937-393-3458
