Making an Impact – Delivering Hope

“For I was hungry and you gave me food…I was naked and you gave me clothing, …as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me.”
Matthew 25:35,36 & 40 (NRSV)

Helping more than 5,000 people every year

For the nearly 30 percent of households with children going hungry every day in the greater Dayton area, Epiphany’s Pantry is more than a room full of food, clothing, and household items. It is an oasis for many in despair. Through generous financial support, continuing donations, and endless hours from volunteers, the Epiphany Pantry is possible and making a positive impact in the Dayton area.

The Pantry is an emergency source, rather than a place for recurring assistance to the same families. Yet the need for one-time aid continues to increase. Thanks to financial gifts and weekly donations of clothing, food, and household items, the Epiphany Pantry is possible, and people are finding hope.

If You Need Help


Families & Individuals 

The Epiphany Pantry works in partnership with social agencies, churches, and schools in the Miami Valley. We are sorry for the difficulties you are experiencing. Because we cannot work directly with the families, you must first contact your pastor, social worker, or guidance counselor, who will in turn contact Epiphany directly.

About the Pantry


Our Volunteers

A dedicated number of volunteers donate their time each week to organize donations and stock orders received from the social workers. While some volunteers are packing orders for food, others are filling requests for clothing, and household, cleaning and personal care items. Amidst this hustle and bustle, the Holy Spirit is alive and well in the hearts and hands of the Pantry volunteers.

Working in the Pantry has made me so much more aware of my many blessings, and I thank God for letting me be here to make a difference in someone else’s life.” 

A Little History

The Clothing Pantry began in 1974 keeping supplies on shelves in the corner of a Sunday School room.  Folks needing assistance came to the church and tried on the clothes.  It wasn’t long before this system needed revising and the Pantry partnered the social agencies, such as the Red Cross and Montgomery County Children’s Service Bureau.  Word spread and more agencies contacted us to help their clients.  With the wonderful support from the congregation, Epiphany’s Pantry grew and we were able to include small household items, emergency food, personal care items, and cleaning supplies for our brothers and sisters in need. 

Today, we work with more than 40 agencies and schools. In 2017 we clothed 2,547 children and 1,488 adults. We gave food to 5,588 individuals, hygiene items to 1,731 people, cleaning products to 1,717 families and household items to 1,410 families. Overall, this is an average ten percent increase over 2016.
