Tell Us Your Story


We imagine a community where everyone has access to enough nutritious food to feed themselves and their families; where no one has to choose between paying for utilities or heat and food, rent or mortgage and food, or between paying for medical bills and food. We envision a time that no neighbor goes to bed hungry.

  • Every day 30 families choose a five day supply of healthful food including fresh produce, milk and lean protein that is best for their needs.
  • From May to October, we distribute fresh produce free to income-eligible families.
  • Every month, we offer a variety of nutrition education and cooking classes.
  • Collaborations  with  Broad Street Afterschool and COMPASS provide nutrition education and cooking skills.


More than 40% of the food we provide to our neighbors in need is purchased from Mid-Ohio Foodbank or local retailers.  Your cash donations help us fill our shelves with the most nutritious food available.  We welcome donations of unexpired shelf stable foods and fresh produce. Interested in hosting a healthy food drive? Contact Kathy Kelly-Long for details.
