They will combine to donate $35,000 per month from April through August to help “the food bank acquire and distribute food and supplies to existing families in need while also addressing the increased demand from families recently impacted by the health crisis.”

“We understand that this is a marathon, not a sprint, and that it will take months for many of our struggling neighbors to recover,” said Mid-Ohio Foodbank CEO and President Matt Habash in a press release. “We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of these amazing families to be on this journey with us.”
