In The Spotlight

Welcome New Member: The Ohio Association of Foodbanks

Located in Columbus, the Ohio Association of Foodbanks was formed in 1991 and partners with Ohio's 12 Feeding America foodbanks and other nonprofit organizations to provide food and resources to people in need. The association provides grants to United Ways for free tax preparation assistance and the Ohio Benefits Bank to connect Ohio’s families with work support programs and tax credits. As more people who have fallen out of the middle class and into poverty seek assistance from Ohio’s emergency food providers for the first time, the association continues to work to meet the growing need, while looking to the future for new and innovative ways to end hunger in our state. In addition, the association advocates for equitable public policy at the state and federal levels to decrease hunger in Ohio, working with partners to inform policymakers, media and other stakeholders about the issues facing low-income Ohioans.
