Good Neighbor House provided access to quality, comprehensive and respectful care to Greater Dayton through medical and dental clinics and its food pantry. In 2022, the food pantry served over 32,500 clients, distributing 593,000 food items. A recent increase in food pantry services has posed a few challenges, as refrigerators and freezers cannot hold the full volume of food being received. Additionally, GNH does not have the equipment to accurately weigh or calculate the food items it receives at the pantry. To address these issues, the organization is seeking funds to purchase two, reach-in freezer and refrigerator units and a pallet scale.
