Not having enough to eat can negatively impact health. Our health equity programs fight food insecurity and provide one-on-one support with a community health worker to reach health goals.

  • Distributed 16,700 pounds of food, equaling 13,916 meals to participants
  • Bringing Healthy Home served 69 growing families
  • Assisted 57 individuals with Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) applications

All this would not be possible without the generous support of financial contributors and volunteers. We're so grateful for those who join us to end hunger in Southeast Ohio!
