The good folks at Agape Distribution are about serving others. They have helped my family many times, and have given me the opportunity to help others in return. This is a unique group of people, and a unique non-profit group!

Im currently interning with Agape Distribution. This is my second internship and I just can't believe how much I am learning. Agape touches the lives of such a wide range of people. The work they do is helping huge amounts of people each and everyday. Baskets and Baskets of food flow out the door every day. Its truely amazing to see. In addition, to providing food assistance to so many people, the staff are truely amazing people to be around. They have heart for what they do and it is seen in their dedication to the people that walk through their door. The staff appear tireless, dispite the burden of an endless work load serving the community in Shelby County. I am honored and inspired each hour that I spend at Agape.

For the past 12 years, I have greeted and processed people who wish to shop at the Agape Distribution Food Pantry. The food pantry has grown over the 12 years I have volunteered here. Many people appreciate that we have food available to them during these hard economic times. Our food pantry is comprised of: 3,120 registered families, 5,300 registered adults, 1,025 registered seniors, and 9,954 registered children. The number of food orders available to families as of this date (Oct. 17, 2012) is 13,821, representing a 9% increase over last year. This number of food orders represents over 1,000,000 pounds of food used by our food pantry families. Through the food pantry and store available to non profits, Agape Distribution truly lives up to its goal of "Helping the Hurting" in Shelby County and all around the world. God uses us to help people locally and wherever God's work is reached by people shopping with us. We look forward to a busy Thanksgiving and Christmas season, serving Jesus here in Sidney, OH.

We are a small non-profit organization and are permitted to purchase many non food products through Agape. They have saved us so much money. Their products are first class and they are the most frindly and accommodating people I have ever met. My Moter and fater-in-law both volunteer there. They are so proud to be a part of helping people in need. Agape and the people who work there are truly a blessing to this community!

I've been cooking for the volunteers at Agape Distribution for over ten years. There's nothing like seeing the looks on their faces as I bring their lunch every Wednesday that I'm home. Agape has helped people with food, hope, even jobs. It gives them the feeling that somebody cares.

Agape Distribution is one of the most unique, most effectual, most impactful charitable organizations I have ever encountered. In difficult times like so many Americans are now experiencing, approximately 35% of our county's residents are registered at Agape to receive food. Not only food, however, but encouragement, acceptance, and dignity. Every day at Agape Distribution, one can personally witness encounters that reaffirm one's faith in humanity and our ability to love and care for one another. For that reason and many others, I consider volunteering at Agape not only a blessing, but an honor and a privilege.

AGAPE Distribution is an amazing organization that serves not only the Shelby County area but also is a part of outreach throughout the world. They've helped thousands of people in this area and with donations and support from those that can help will continue to do things like nutrition education and the moble food pantry that serves the outlying Shelby County areas.
