Food for Thought…Fighting Hunger

Posted on Jun 08, 2012 by: UCT

UCT doesn’t just talk about helping communities and giving back – we put our money where our mouths are…by supporting the Mid-Ohio Foodbank Operation Feed campaign.

OPERATION FEED is a community-wide food and funds drive coordinated by Mid-Ohio Foodbank.

o Each year, Mid-Ohio Foodbank joins forces with local businesses, schools, civic groups, and individuals to raise critically needed donations in this community-wide campaign effort.

o Operation Feed stocks the shelves of hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters in central & eastern Ohio.

o Each one of these agencies depends on Operation Feed to help provide nutritious, filling food for the people they serve.

o 100% of each dollar raised through Operation Feed is used to provide food for central & eastern Ohio residents in need.

o For every $1 donated, Mid-Ohio Foodbank is able to provide 3 meals to its partner agencies.

o Operation Feed raised over 6 million meals in 2011. The goal for 2012 is 7.5 million meals.
