Due to logistical concerns and the need to protect the health of our many volunteers and clients, the Smoky Row Food Pantry will not be resuming regular open hours at this time.

We will have a special drive-up-only distribution on May 16th and June 6th from 7-10am.

We appreciate your patience as we ensure the safety of everyone who visits, volunteers, and contributes to the Smoky Row Food Pantry.

A Note to our Volunteers, Patrons, and Partners regarding COVID-19


The Smoky Row Food Pantry is a joint effort of dozens of dedicated volunteers and many, many different organizations who work together to feed and nurture our hungry neighbors. The Pantry is open every Wednesday, from 4-6pm, and every Saturday, from 7-10am. Please visit, whether to receive healthy, donated food from partner stores all around Northwest Columbus or to volunteer as we serve our community and one another. There’s no need to bring any proof of anything with you, although an ID is helpful.
Thanks to Help My Neighbor, Sawmill Interfaith Community Care group, St. Joan of Arc and St. Joan of Arc’s Saint Vincent De Paul Society, Highlands Presbyterian Church, Vineyard Sawmill Campus, Linworth UMC, St. Peter Catholic, Lord of Life Lutheran Church, the Sedona Grace Foundation, and so many others who raise food, provide regular volunteers and financial support, and bless our community. If you shop at Trader Joe’s, Fresh Thyme, Whole Foods,  Bob Evans, or Starbucks in the Northwest part of Columbus, say thank you for their regular support of the Smoky Row Food Pantry!
