Needs your food donations now:

moving to larger space soon

LOVELAND, OH (June 17, 2024) – Did you hear the news?  Loveland InterFaith Effort LIFE Food Pantry is moving into a larger space.

LIFE Food Pantry in Loveland, OH front door may look a little different by mid-summer (Chuck Gibson)

In 2021, LIFE Food Pantry made the move to their current location in Shoppers Haven at 541 Loveland-Madeira Rd. in Loveland across from LPS and LES Loveland Schools. According to information they provided LIFE is now serving nearly twice the number of families (434 in 2019 to 856 in 2023) with needs continuing to increase. Thus, the need for more space. The good news is, they’re not going far with the new larger space allowing them to stay in the Shoppers Haven center. This will be conveniently central to the families they serve while allowing the necessary space to accommodate the growing client base. They expect to make the move in mid-summer. As always, volunteers make the difference along with your continued generous donations – both in needed items and monetary support. (Use links at end of this story)

For now, Donations can still be dropped off:  any time in the bin outside LIFE Pantry located at: 541 Loveland-Madeira Rd. – Loveland, OH 45140
