Meet Our Team

Find your inner power by helping others

​A group of volunteers come in each Tuesday to make a meal. 

One Tuesday a month Alliance Church very generously brings in a meal to serve.  

If you would like your church to get involved, please don't hesitate to contact us. 419.333.9667

Hunger isn't seasonal, which is why our year-round food bank gets so much attention. Devote an afternoon to filling the boxes and see first-hand the families we help.

Locally, Pontifex is a vocal advocate for the hungry and displaced. We go out of our way to help children and families in need. We listen to the needs of each person who comes our way and if we can not help them we find who can.

Pontifex needs your help! Won't you consider volunteering in one of the ministries we provide the community and/or one of our fundraisers we do to raise the funds needed to offer these much needed services to our community.

​If you volunteer 3 or more hours a week you receive a free gym membership.
