OPERATION FEED

Operation Feed provides fresh, healthy food for local families struggling with hunger. Each year, we join forces with local businesses, schools, civic groups, and individuals to raise critically needed resources through a community-wide drive.

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 525,300 individuals receive emergency food each year through Mid-Ohio Foodbank.
  • 35% of food requests from pantries are for children. 17% 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.

HOW CAN YOU HELP

Operation Feed raises funds and food equating to millions of meals for families here in our community struggling to make ends meet. The program begins in March and runs through June. Here’s how you can get involved:

John's Story

Hard Times: Finding a Way to Focus

John is resourceful, good with his hands and a whiz under the hood of a car.  But a lack of steady work created hard times, including a period of homelessness.  Having enough nourishing food was a big challenge.

His local Mid-Ohio Foodbank supported Produce Market provides him with free fresh fruits and vegetables, bread, and dairy at a farmer’s market style distribution.  Thanks to you, and with help from Mid-Ohio Foodbank, John can focus on more important parts of his life.
