Mid-Ohio Foodbank

1 in 6 Ohioans and 1 in 4 children face food insecurity every day.  No one should go hungry, and yet thousands of people go hungry in our community every day.  Since 1980, The Mid-Ohio Foodbank has been working with grocers, food companies, Ohio farmers, the USDA, community partners, and people like us to obtain food and distribute it to 650 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, after-school programs, and senior housing sites across central and eastern Ohio.

On December 8th, you have TWO different opportunities to volunteer at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank (3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City, OH 43123.)

  1. Kroger Community Food Pantry:  You will guide shoppers through their food pantry choices.  There is some quick training, but the job is easy and the rewards are huge!  
    • We need eight volunteers to serve from 8:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. 
    • Families with children 11+ are welcome.
  2. Kids CafĂ© Meal Prep:  Volunteering your time will play a role in providing children with a healthy meal each day.  Work alongside the Foodbank’s chefs to prep and package meals for hungry children!  
    • We need eight volunteers to serve from 8:30 to noon
    • Families with children 13+ are welcome.

For each shift, we plan to meet at Northwest Chapel and carpool, although you are certainly free to meet us there!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please do NOT register on the Mid-Ohio Foodbank site.  We will submit registration on your behalf. If you also register on their site, it could cause them to be shorthanded for that shift!!
