Montgomery Food Share LogoIt has been a productive summer for Montgomery Food Share for the organization just received 501(c)3 designation from the Internal Revenue Service.  For a non-profit organization this means that donations are tax deductible and can be claimed on individual donor’s tax forms.

Montgomery Food Share is now 11 neighborhoods strong, with over 400 families and individuals participating as food donors.  These neighborhoods include Montgomery Woods, Montgomery Heights, Swaim Field, Ferris Williams, Forest Glen, Governor’s Watch, The Reserve, Terwilligers, Shadowhill Acres, Storybook Acres and Ivygate.

On Saturday, August 2, Montgomery Food Share collected 3,249 pounds of food and personal care items from local donors providing 3898.8 meals to food insecure individuals and families in Hamilton County.  Some donations were set aside for Operation Give Back to help families in the Sycamore Community Schools district.

Local businesses, Comey and Shepherd Realtors, Star One Realtors, and FastSigns on Kenwood Road, have made contributions of food and personal care items in August as well.

Montgomery Food Share would like to thank Walker Bros. Ice Cream for holding a fundraiser for us on August 5 and Steve Sylvester of Comey and Shepherd Realtors for his generous donation.

If you, or your business, would like to become a food donor, please contact Wendy New at or find more information about Montgomery Food Share at connectmontgomery.org or our FaceBook page.
