The HOPE Foundation of Darke County recently awarded a community grant to the FISH Choice Pantry in Greenville. The grant was a result of proceeds from the HOPE Foundation’s SUNshine 5K last fall that raised thousands of dollars for non-profit organizations that serve Darke County residents. The 2014 SUNshine 5K will be on Saturday, Sept. 13, in Greenville City Park and will once again benefit several Darke County charities. More information is on the HOPE Foundation’s website,

FISH Choice Pantry, located at 400 Markwith Ave. in Greenville, provides food to Darke County residents in need. An ecumenical non-profit organization, FISH offers a variety of food that people choose for themselves, and recently the pantry has added fresh fruits and vegetables to the offerings. The pantry is open 1-2 p.m. Monday, 10-11 a.m. Wednesday, and 4-5 p.m. Friday. Call 548-2000 for more information or to arrange a donation.
