“With the salons, barbershops and massage places being forced to close due to (the coronavirus), a lot of these people are struggling. Most work for themselves so they have been ineligible for unemployment. These people have families to feed just like the rest of us,” said Nicole Adkins, director of With God’s Grace mobile food pantry.

With God’s Grace, like other food pantries in the Dayton-area, has seen a significant increase in families seeking food assistance since the coronavirus pandemic hit Ohio. This week, they hit an all-time record of 1,242 families served in one day. During April, With God’s Grace served 9,393 families in the Miami Valley.

Anybody can come to any of the With God’s Grace Mobile Food Handouts every time they are open. There are no income or ZIP code restrictions.
