Agency Partners play a key role in distributing fresh food directly to our hungry neighbors. In addition, the Foodbank operates several programs that enhance the agency distributions, as well as target under-served populations who have less access to fresh food.
Produce Markets are free community events sponsored by Mid-Ohio Foodbank and facilitated by select partnering agencies. At these events, a Foodbank truck delivers about 10,000 pounds of fresh produce, bread and bakery items to a pre-selected community location or zip code. The food is then directly distributed to about 200 food insecure families.
Produce Express is a fresh produce delivery program that services our supplemental and emergency food sites and soup kitchens. This program allows our partner agencies the ability to provide fresh fruits and vegetables and some non-perishable items to food insecure families and individuals on a regular basis.
Mobile Markets deliver fresh produce, dairy, bread & bakery products to low-income senior residences and subsidized childcare centers in Franklin County as well as low-income community sites in rural counties.
