Still the Choice Model
The choice food pantry concept helps to build self-esteem and provides dignity to those who are in need by allowing clients to choose the food their families will eat. It also allows the LSS Food Pantries to be a better steward of our donated or purchased food by eliminating the chance of giving out items that will not be used.
The traditional choice food pantry model allows clients to select their own foods within the USDA food groups. In our new online system, families will still be able to choose the food they most need but will not be constrained by food groups.
We’ve been distributing food to Ohio families via mobile distributions for more than 8 years.
