Community Involvement

Innkeepers Pantry
Defiance County residents, with proper ID, may receive personal hygiene items, paper products and cleaning supplies, as needed. The pantry is maintained with donations from the members of Zion’s Lutheran Church, and from other community members and organizations. Pantry distribution is held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month, from 4:30 – 6:00 pm.
Community Meal
In conjunction with the pantry distribution, the Innkeepers host a free Community meal, on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. All are welcome! Meals are offered as carry-out or in person dining. Come and join your neighbors!
