God’s Pantry in the church to serve the community by providing food for those in need. It is funded completely by grants, donations by individuals, community donations, and support from Second Pres. It's staffed by volunteers and is the largest pantry in Scioto County.od's Pantry is located in the basement of Second Presbyterian Church and is stocked with non-perishable food items, including long-life milk products. Occasionally we are blessed with donations of fresh fruit and vegetables for our families. We also have frozen meats and cheese available.


God's Pantry is a choice pantry where recipients shop for their needs based on the number of people in their household for whom they are shopping. Health care workers may also serve as a proxy for clients.

Our Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) often works with local school districts and parents to reduce unwanted behaviors at home and school while working with the individual child to teach new skills or replacement behaviors by completing functional behavior assessments, designing function-based interventions, and guiding teams in the development of behavior intervention plans at home, school, or community settings.
