CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Volunteers arrived at Anderson Ferry Church of Christ Food Pantry on Greenwell Avenue Monday morning to find its food stock standing in puddles of water.

"To find that there is some goods that got ruined because of the flooding, that's heartbreaking,” said pantry director, Matt Miller.

The pantry is run out of the basement of a small two bedroom house that the church owns next door and helps needy families on Monday’s and Thursday’s.

"It was sad not being able to serve our families that rely on us Mondays, so that's what broke  heart this morning," said assistant director, Terry Camele.

Miller said the pantry serves about five hundred families a month and relies on donations from individuals and companies to operate. He is expecting the cleanup to finish before the pantry is expected to open up on Thursday.
