AGAPE FOOD PANTRY
The Client Services Building is located at 1220 East Spring Street in St. Marys, Ohio, just one block north of Joint Township District Memorial Hospital.
Food assistance may be received every 30 days. All clients will be asked to verify that they meet the requirements on the USDA Eligibility to Take Food Home Form which clearly states that by verifying you are providing a self- declaration that your income does not exceed 200% of the poverty level per household size. Clients will also be asked if all information is still accurate or if changes should be made to their file.
In order to assure assistance, we ask that clients arrive at least fifteen (15) minutes prior to the ending time for each pantry period. This allows our volunteers to best serve all those in need. To be eligible to receive food from the Agape Food Pantry, you must be a resident of Western Auglaize County which covers Minster, New Bremen, New Knoxville and St. Marys.
