Inter Parish Ministry offers a food pantry in Newtown to serve families in need in the local community. 

Serving Opportunities

Summertime can be challenging for some families when there are no school meals available. Horizon partners with Inter Parish Ministry to help bridge that gap for families in need in Clermont County and Eastern Hamilton County. You can help through this simple “Bag Hunger” program. Take the attached blue bag with you on your next shopping trip and return it to Horizon’s Registration Desk in the Atrium near the fireplace. Bags may also be returned to the Horizon offices on weekdays. Questions? Email Melody Hamilton at or call 513 272-5800, ext. 239.
