About Operation Feed

Since 1980, Operation Feed has provided meals for families in need. Each year, we join forces with local businesses, schools, civic groups and individuals to raise critically needed resources through a community-wide drive.

Mid-Ohio Foodbank distributed over 50 million pounds of food last year, enabling food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters across 20 counties to provide food for more than 107,000 meals each day. Your Operation Feed efforts make this support possible.

 
Operation Feed provides fresh, healthy food for local families struggling with hunger. Learn how you can help.


Who Needs Help?

One in six Ohioans is food insecure. They don't know where a next meal is coming from. It could be your coworker, friend, or neighbor. Many struggling families have to choose between paying for housing, utilities or medical expenses and putting food on the table.
  • More than 248,000 individuals receive emergency food each year through Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
  • 35% of food requests from pantries are for children. 15% are for senior citizens.
  • About half of client households have at least one working adult.
  • Only 5% of clients are homeless; 1 in 5 is a homeowner.
