Ways to Help

Are you passionate about ending hunger? Help us address the issues that directly impact food insecurity.

BECOME A FAN

Mid-Ohio Foodbank is working hard to engage public policy decision makers and constituents alike in the hunger conversation. The Foodbank Advocacy Network (FAN) is essential in helping us advance our mission to ensure that no one goes hungry. It is only by working together that we can impact public policy decisions and create positive change for those in our community who are hungry.

 

As a FAN stakeholder, we will inform you about issues and actions that deserve our urgent attention. Please accept our invitation to write a letter, send an email, make a phone call, attend an event, tweet a comment, or lend your Facebook status to influence legislation that aims to alleviate hunger.

If you have questions or would like more information about our advocacy programs, please email us at ADVOCACY@MIDOHIOFOODBANK.ORG.

 

Endorsing OFPACP

The Ohio Food Program and Agricultural Clearance Program (OFPACP) makes fresh fruits and vegetables, protein items, and shelf-stable foods available to Ohio’s 12 Feeding America foodbanks, thanks to support from the State of Ohio. OFPACP directs surplus agricultural products from Ohio farmers, growers, and producers to hungry people and helps keep our shelves stocked. It is recognized as one of the state’s most successful public-private partnerships.
