For those wishing to sponsor a child's backback for an entire school year, please use our Recurring Donation form. Each month a $12 donation will be billed to your credit card. Simply entire the number of monthly installments you would like to give. Please note that 12 month donations of $12 per month will cover the costs of one child's backpack for a 9 month school year. However, if you would like to sponsor 2 or more backpacks, simply change the monthly donation amount (for example: $24 = 2 packpaces, $36 = 3 packpacks). Also feel free to adjust the duration if you would like to continue this donation longer than the default 12 monthly installments.

Senior Box Program

CSFP is a federally funded program which supplies seniors, who are 60+ years of age and meet income guidelines, with a 32-40 lb. box of food each month. Help pack boxes to distribute to seniors on this program.

WOFB food boxes provide seniors who are 50+ years of age and meet income guidelines with a box of food each month. These boxes are solely funded by the West Ohio Food Bank, with assistance by the United Way of Greater Lima. Presently, this program is only for residents of Allen County. Help sort food from food drives that goes into these boxes each month.

Hold a food drive to help support the inventory needed for the WOFB boxes.

Host a Mobile Pantry: Mobile Pantries are a quick, easy, inexpensive way that any non-profit organization can provide massive amounts of help to people in need. Service Clubs or Churches can pay for the delivery to the location of their choice to distribute this product. The cost is $500.00 for 5,000 pounds of food.
