SEM Food Pantry 

The SEM Food Pantry, located on Beechmont Avenue in the heart of Mt. Washington, is a major supplier of emergency food to the needy of the Mt. Washington-Anderson Township-western Clermont County area. In 2014, the Pantry served more than 13,915 needy clients.

We operate as a “choice pantry,” meaning that clients “shop” for the food they like and can use, so everything with which they leave will be consumed. We are open on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Tuesday from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Call for an appointment, so there will be minimal waiting to be served.

The Food Pantry partners with the Freestore/Foodbank and receives much food from them for distribution. It also operates with an all-volunteer staff and has extremely low overhead. Consequently, it can deliver approximately 94 cents of every dollar received to our needy clients. It is a Federal and State tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization and your gifts are tax-deductible.
