Our Northwood, Ohio Adventist Community Services Center is one of 1,250 locations, large and small, across the North American Division of the Seventh-day Adventist church.
In June 2010, following the tornado that tore through Lake Township, a Disaster Response team was sent to our community to help individuals and families affected by the tragedy.
A few years ago we began offering free bread to our local community. Soon we added a clothing pantry, followed by a non-perishable food pantry, and free community supper program. Our programs are sponsored locally by the Northwood Seventh-day Adventist Church in Northwood.
With the growth of these community programs we built a Community Services Center addition to our local church which was completed in September 2019.
We receive our bread from the Panera Bread bakery-cafe located in Perrysburg. Our organization participates in Panera Bread’s Day-End Dough-Nation® program and we are very grateful for their support.
Donated bread from Panera is distributed every Thursday morning (9:00 am - 10:00 am) from our Community Services Center.
Our food pantry consist primarily of non-pershable food items. We hope to expand this program in the future.
We offer women's, men's and children's clothing.
In addition we receive non-clothing items (household goods) on a periodic basis.
We also offer Free Community Suppers on the 2nd Tuesday of every month from 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm.
Please join us for a great meal and conversation with your neighbors and friends.
We also conduct free blood pressure tests every Thursday morning from 9-10 am.
In addition we support the following organizations in the Toledo area with our bread and clothing programs.
