About US

Pumpkins Helping People's (PHP's) mission is to fight hunger by providing consumers a convenient way to turn their annual fall pumpkin purchase into an opportunity to help fight hunger at a local level. 

PHP was founded in 2017 by Gabriella Howard, Alexandrea Howard, and Samuel Howard.  In 2018, we acquired our 501(c)3 nonprofit status.  PHP donates ALL of its profit to food pantries.  We volunteer our time so that even more of your contribution goes to help the food pantry. 

In 2017, we donated $669 to the Canal Winchester Food Pantry; in 2018, we donated $1,733; in 2019, we donated $2,877, and in 2020, we donated $3,284!  Your support of PHP has allowed us to donate over $8,563 to feed your neighbors.


We thank our customers and our key sponsors TS Tech and South Central Power for helping us make this a reality.  We plan to partner again with the Canal Winchester Food Pantry in 2021 and hope to expand PHP to make an even bigger difference in our community. 


Please help us fight hunger - one pumpkin at a time.

Purchase our pumpkins & spread the word!
