Each year, the Urban Mission distributes over 1.8 million pounds of food to families in need.
In 2015, a Client Choice Pantry was opened to support more than 5,000 individuals each month.
The Urban Mission also operates a restaurant style kitchen which serves a hot meal four times a week. Last year alone, the Unity Kitchen provided 20,000 to our community.
The Urban Mission also remains a strong partner with the Mid-Ohio Foodbank, serving as a hub for ten of its local pantries.
Client Choice Pantry
In 1975, “God’s Pantry” began out of a Sunday School classroom in the basement of Calvary United Methodist Church in downtown Steubenville. Twenty-two bags of groceries were sent home with families that first day of operations. Now located in our 30,000 square foot Warehouse at 311 N. Sixth Street, in 2015, God’s Pantry served over 1,600 families who were living at or below the poverty level, distributing over 1.8 million pounds of food.
