Reaching Further ● Feeding More Campaign Launch:
IPM Paves the Way to New Building
IPM Food Pantry’s Pave the Way event June 28 introduced early donors, supporters and community members to our future home, which is currently under construction at 4623 Aicholtz Road, near I-275 in Eastgate.

The event served as the public kick-off of our Reaching Further Feeding More Campaign, which will fund the new building, heightened outreach and innovative programs. The 12,000-square-foot pantry and distribution center, slated to be completed this fall, will efficiently consolidate our services into one location, increase our food storage capability and enable us to reach further into the communities that we serve.

We have achieved 80 percent of our $5 million goal to Expand, Mobilize and Equip our mission to provide food to our neighbors in need.
This new building will stand as a testament to the power of our community, which comes from all of you. Help us to Close the Gap of IPM's Reaching Further ● Feeding More Campaign with your donation:
"Alida and the IPM team work tirelessly and creatively to reach those in need in this community, and they do this in multiple ways and in many places — at the pantry, community centers and events, schools and churches, affordable housing complexes and free giving boxes in needy neighborhoods." — Nirvani Head, IPM Board Member and Campaign Co-Chair
Saluting Our Volunteers: Thank You for All You Do!
We were delighted to be able to celebrate IPM's dedicated volunteer team in person for the first time since 2019! — with a luncheon June 27 at Crossroads East Side. The nearly 70 volunteers in attendance were treated to a sneak peek of how our new pantry and distribution center is shaping up.

In all seasons we are grateful for the countless hours of support provided by our enthusiastic, community volunteers. We thank you for your invaluable support of time and talents!
Last Chance: Double Your Summer Hunger Gift
While the start of the new school year lurks just over the horizon, families who struggle to stretch their limited food budgets still have over a month of providing meals that their children would normally be eligible to receive free at school.

Thanks to generous matches by the Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr. Foundation and the Scripps Howard Foundation, gifts to IPM's Summer Hunger campaign are doubled up to $25,000.00.
