Help Feed Our Hungry Neighbors

The demand for food assistance in central and eastern Ohio continues at record levels. By holding a food drive and/or funds drive you can help provide the food our friends and neighbors need the most.

If you are planning a food drive, please complete this form so we can best support your efforts.

Make the Most of Your Efforts

Offer the opportunity for donors to contribute cash instead of shelf stable food items. Food drive hosts receive positive feedback when donors learn that for every $1.00 donated, Mid-Ohio Foodbank can provide $10.00 worth of food and groceries. Much more than food, including fresh fruits and vegetables, will be provided to those in need through monetary donations versus the donation of shelf stable food items.

Ask for Essentials

Check out our most needed items, identified by our partner agencies:

  • Chili with beans

Please consider the delivery of your food drive items as part of your donation to Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Fuel and manpower costs can often exceed the value of donated items and that would not help us provide more food to those in need.

We ask that if the amount of food collected can fit within a personal vehicle, please deliver it to Mid-Ohio Foodbank. A staff person will help you unload, weigh your donation and provide a poundage receipt.
