Feeding Our Community
Southeast Ohio has some of the highest rates of food insecurity in the state. One in six individuals faces hunger. If you're facing food insecurity, your not alone. We can help.
Check out our resources to find emergency food assistance, help getting SNAP (food stamps), or other programs to end hunger.
When children don't have the nutrition they need, they may have trouble learning in school and have a greater chance of having chronic health problems like asthma. Each year, we help more than 15,000 children in Southeast Ohio find the food and nutrition they need to thrive.
More seniors face food insecurity each year. That puts them at a greater risk of health issues, including diabetes and heart disease. They face tough choices like paying for their medicine or buying groceries. Our programs work to remove those impossible choices and provide the nutritious food they need.
For every meal the foodbank provides, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) provides nine. SNAP, also called food stamps, helps millions of people each year buy the nutritious food they need when they face hard times. We're here if you need help if you have questions about SNAP or need help applying.
