94 Households Served at IPM's First 2023 Mobile Pantry
at Mt. Carmel Christian Church
IPM meets our neighbors in need where they live, learn, play and pray, and our Mobile Food Pantries are a vital part of that mission. We served 94 households at our first Mobile Pantry of 2023 on March 4 at Mt. Carmel Christian Church in Batavia. In all, we distributed 4,500 pounds of food to 262 individuals. Here's how it looked from above: Mt. Carmel Mobile Pantry

This year we have scheduled nearly 40 Mobile Pantries throughout IPM’s service area to expand our reach in the community. See the additional March and April Mobile Pantries listed below; you can find the complete 2023 Mobile Food Pantry schedule on our website: 2023 IPM Mobile Pantry Schedule
"It was wonderful to have the youth involved, walking through the line and offering us coffee and doughnuts."

IPM's Spring into Action: An Evening of
Fun, Friends and Fabulous Auction Finds
IPM's Spring into Action event is less than a month away! We're really excited to be able to see everyone in person again after a three-year delay. Please join us for the evening of fun and friendship April 14 at Loveland's RSVP Event Center.

The event will feature an attractive array of live and silent auction opportunities, including:
  • One determined bourbon connoisseur won’t have to hit the Kentucky Bourbon Trail to score a treasure trove of Buffalo Trace Distillery’s finest bourbon. The impressive collection features four bottles that bourbon buffs search for and stand in line to obtain, anchored by collectors’ favorite Blanton’s Single Barrel Bourbon, the original single barrel brand. 
  • A week's stay for up to 20 people at a spacious lakefront home with its own dock on Norris Lake, Tennessee.
  • A week's stay for up to six people in a newly remodeled California desert home in Joshua Tree.
  • A private, bird's eye view helicopter tour over Cincinnati for three people.
  • A spirit pull sure to please wine, bourbon and all spirits connoisseurs.
