Members of Greenville High School athletics program help stock FISH Choice Pantry.
The Greenville FISH organization is currently engaged in an extreme food drive to help stock their pantry which provides food to local citizens with limited resources. The food drive, dubbed FEED DARKE COUNTY by the ecumenical volunteer organization, was launched on September 15th in conjunction with the Illumination Festival at the Darke County Fair grounds, and will close on Saturday, October 20.

“The need is great, and our resources are becoming depleted. During this harvest season, we are hoping that generous Darke Countians will once again donate as they are able so that we can continue to serve our neighbors,” said FISH Coordinator Kristy Cutarelli. Donations of non-perishable food items may be delivered to the FISH Choice Pantry, 400 Markwith Avenue, Greenville, at anytime, and dropped off in the box located at the rear of the building. A Harvest Day Celebration will be held from 9 a.m. until 12 noon on the final day of the drive; all donors are invited to participate in the celebration.

FISH has served local citizens since 1967, and currently operates the Choice Pantry, which is open Mondays from 1 p.m. till 2 p.m., Wednesdays 10 a.m. till 11 a.m., and Fridays 4 p.m. till 5 p.m. Donations are welcome at any time throughout the year. In 2011, FISH served 3,085 households; this year has thus far seen a 26% increase in participation. For more information or to make different arrangements for donations, contact Ms. Cutarelli at 937-316-8420 or leave a message on the FISH phone at 548-2000.
