Love God, Love Our Neighbor
Jesus offers a perfect example of how we should live, by loving God and our neighbor. He spent His whole life engaging with people we avoid in our everyday life. Jesus showed us what is meant to become love when He spent His last meal with a man He knew would betray Him and then willing died a criminal's death.

Nourish Our Neighbors to Flourish
HEART Food Pantry, Inc. is a Christian based organization started by the Reynoldsburg Ministerial Association that opened as a basic food pantry on November 12, 2011.
In an enhanced partnership with Mid-Ohio Food Bank, today HEART operates as Mid-Ohio Market at HEART. HEART focuses on providing our neighbors that live below 200% of the poverty level access to fresh healthy food while connecting them to life building community resources in a holistic, customer-centric market.
HEART additionally partners with Helping Hands Food Pantry to provide weekend food bags to Reynoldsburg City Schools students that qualify for free or reduced lunch. This program supplements a student’s weekend meals with nutritious food.
We also receive support and donations from our community champions: local churches, schools, businesses, civic organizations and individuals.
