A Diverse Church For A Diverse Community

Food Pantry

In 2001, Marilyn Guittar, a 69 year-old woman who was a member of Dayspring Community Church asked if she could turn an old storage closet in the kitchen into a food pantry.  Since then, her dream has turned into a fully-functioning food pantry open weekly at Dayspring.  The Dayspring Food Pantry is government regulated through First Link and is resourced by the Mid-Ohio Food Bank, donations by the Dayspring community, and by the many hours of our volunteers.

They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away.  Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.  He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.  Let them give thanks to the LORD for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men, for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things. Psalm 107:5-9

Marilyn had this to say: “We minister to people when they need it. Oftentimes, we pray on the spot for people as they have need…I think God is using this pantry and us…”
