ABOUT IPM FOOD PANTRY
IPM Food Pantry feeds families in need and brings community members together to enhance lives throughout the Cincinnati area. IPM continues to transform the definition of a traditional food pantry. We meet people where they are and treat each family with dignity, helping the entire community thrive.
Things We Do
MAKING A DIFFERENCE
“On Saturday night, I would often go to work thinking about my kids, knowing exactly how many tips I needed to pay our rent for the month. When I learned about IPM, I was worried about what people would think, but my family was in need, so I walked through the pantry doors. The volunteers were so welcoming, and I was relieved that I could count on the pantry for the food my family needed."
Since our founding in 1964 by four local churches, IPM Food Pantry has focused on feeding families in need to create a thriving community. IPM has expanded its reach, through collaboration, from a single pantry into more than 30 zip codes spanning four counties. The 2020 pandemic caused us to shift — as need increased and indoor access ceased — to Drive-Through and Mobile pantries. In 2022 IPM provided nearly 40 mobile food pantries, and almost 70 percent of our clients are served in their communities with Mobiles, Pop-Ups and through our Food Resource Hub.
