The Foodbank Chief Development Officer Lee Lauren Truesdale said it served about 1,600 households over four days last week.

Also this week, The Foodbank received a $10,000 donation from Allison Janney and Ellen DeGeneres. Janney won a game on The Ellen show and the funds went to the Dayton food bank.

The donation will feed about 60,000 people, Truesdale said.

The Foodbank also has a walk-up window at the warehouse for those who do not have access to a car for the drive-thru food pantry. The Foodbank warehouse is off of Dayton RTA bus line 8, Truesdale said.

For questions outside of distribution hours, call The Foodbank’s emergency line at (937) 238-5132 or contact United Way 2-1-1 for support.
