What better way to celebrate Good Friday than by having a mobile food pantry in Fairborn, Ohio. This evening With God’s Grace provided 153 families with a wide selection of fresh produce, potatoes, milk, dairy items, nonperishable food items, Easter candy, juice, bread, and bakery. Each child received an Easter Basket that was passed out by Ambassador Tony Hall. With God’s Grace would like to thank our friends from Hall Hunger Initiative for your dedicated support and all of our volunteers for coming out this evening to help fight Hunger in our community. This evening 475 people have healthy food for dinner this evening.
Dayton city officials are ‘bending the law’ so With God’s Grace Food Pantry can legally operate after dozens of people in support of the pantry showed up to a zoning meeting Tuesday night.
The Dayton, Ohio – City Government initially ordered the pantry to shutdown, but With God’s Grace Executive Director Nicole Adkins refused and instead kept serving hundreds of families who were in need of food.
DAYTON, Ohio (WKEF/WRGT) – With God’s Grace mobile food pantry will officially stay open and continue to operate on Springfield Street thanks to a ruling by the Board of Zoning Appeals Tuesday night.
Owner Nicole Adkins was served early on in January and summoned to make her case to the North East Land Use Board over a zoning discrepancy. Dayton zoning officials had claimed she didn’t have the specific zoning she needed to hold her Wednesday food distributions at her warehouse that feeds around 600 families at a time, and she was threatened with a fine and jail time.
After making her case to the board, they voted that she could keep her doors open, which the Board of Zoning Appeals then accepted with their vote Tuesday night.
