Mid-Ohio Foodbank invests in community gardens, urban farms, and small-scale agriculture projects within the City of Columbus to provide residents in low-income neighborhoods with direct access to fresh fruits and vegetables, specially by using high tunnels.

2018 Urban Agriculture Grant




The Urban Agriculture Grant program provides financial and technical support to enhance urban growing projects into productive, sustainable urban farms and gardens. In addition to improving the community’s access to healthy, fresh food grown within the community, projects also engage and educate neighbors around healthy eating and living.

Funding to Mid-Ohio Foodbank to make these grants in support of projects has been provided by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service pursuant to award number 68-5E34-16-798 and CFDA number 10.902.
