"I believe in paying forward our appreciation to the greater Columbus community for being so good to us as a OMBE firm," says John Larkin, ESC Senior Partner. Our employees assisted the pantry in handing out food to those of the community who are presently less fortunate than we are."The Lutheran Social Services provides food at the Champion Avenue Food Pantry for people in need. Groups from Gethsemane stock shelves and assist the families in selecting food for balanced meals. We also regularly collect food and funds for the Food Pantry.

"It was a great opportunity to work with an organization within our work community to help give back and support people in need," says Larkin. "After it was over, I treated 'Team ESC' to dinner at the Eagle on North High in Columbus."
The pantry also collects non-perishable food year round for the pantry. Volunteers like ESC are occasionally needed to deliver donated goods to the Champion Avenue site. If you would like more information about volunteering at the food pantry, contact the Mission and Ministry Committee, or if you're someone in need of food, you can contact the LSS Food Pantry by calling 614-443-5130 or by visiting them at 1460 S.
