Clermont County Health & Wellness Day Mobile Pantry
Brings Together IPM, Social Service Agencies
Community collaboration and partnerships are at the heart of IPM's Mobile Pantry model, which the 2022 Clermont County Health & Wellness Day Mobile Pantry conducted in Batavia last month illustrates perfectly.

Altogether, 17 social service agencies — including Clermont County Public Health, Ohio Means Jobs and Clermont County Metropolitan Housing Authority — joined forces with IPM and Clermont County Family & Children First to provide vital, time-saving information along with food to our clients in need.

We served 565 individuals representing 168 households in 23 zip codes, including 35.4 percent who are children under age 18. Thanks to everyone who made the day such a success!
"The third annual Family Health and Wellness Day Mobile Pantry was a great success. We had a non-stop flow of cars from before 9 until noon. This shows the need in our community." — Gretchen Behimer, Program Director, Clermont County Family & Children First

Forest Hills ALL IN Food Drive Sets New Record
We are overwhelmed by the generosity of the students, parents, volunteers and staff of the Forest Hills School District and Forest Hills Foundation for Education!

Their 10th annual ALL IN Food Drive blew away the record of previous collection drives: 12,000 pounds of food and personal care items, along with $12,000 in cash donations!

"We couldn't serve our neighbors in need without the generosity of our Forest Hills community," said IPM President/CEO Alida Hart. "Thank you all for making a difference for families struggling with food insecurity."

Students at each Forest Hills school participated in the drive, such as Anderson High School freshmen who assembled Power Packs to fulfill their day of service tradition. The Foundation also partnered with local businesses who donated, including Biggby Coffee, Burn Bootcamp, Rapid Mortgage Company and The UPS Store.

We are grateful for such an outpouring of support for the families we serve. Thank you!
