The Newtown Pantry offers the opportunity to select food and seasonal clothing year round based on family size and preferences. Clients can shop every 90 days with photo ID, proof of residence and family member ID’s.

Inter Parish Ministry offers a client Choice Pantry so that families can select the nutritional food they prefer. Families who come to IPM express their gratitude for having the opportunity to make choices.

Inter Parish Ministry wants to create an atmosphere of dignity for its clients. Many of the people we serve have few choices in other areas of their lives and giving them the opportunity to choose their own food – food their families need and will enjoy – can positively impact their self-esteem.

Volunteers who assist families as they “shop” in the pantry, appreciate the opportunity to interact with them and make them feel comfortable and encouraged.

If you would like to donate food items or volunteer to assist clients as they “shop” in IPM’s client Choice Pantry, please call 513-561-3932 or email chuck@interparish.org.
