Broad Street Presbyterian Church (BSPC) has been a part of the local food system since 1971, distributing free food to families on the Near East Side of Columbus. The Broad Street Food Pantry has evolved to comprehensively meet the community’s need for fresh, nutritious ingredients and other basic resources and now serves 1,200 households each month. BSPC’s model is geared towards offering the freshest food available. It strives to provide respect and dignity to all by giving clients the agency to choose their own food.


Recently, the pantry established the Fresh for All program, which sources produce from local growers. This benefits small-scale farming partners with a fair, guaranteed price and simultaneously provides clients with fresh, nutritious produce from April through November. This new program helps the pantry meet the unprecedented rise in the number of our neighbors seeking help while strengthening local farms and keeping food dollars circulating in the local economy.

“The Food Pantry has helped me and my neighbors and the people I come across at the COTA bus stop. I share the blessings. It helps me in so many ways. It makes me so happy.”


—Matilde Benedetti, Pantry Client and Volunteer
