Thanks to the generosity of CareSource, The Foodbank took a day from their usual business to provide a community-wide Farmers Market at UD Arena. Fresh watermelons, cabbage, corn, potatoes, onions, tomatoes, apples, along with many other vegetables were given out to 717 hungry families!
September 26th was a busy day as we had over 80 volunteers filling out paperwork, bagging food, and handing out the food. Along with the fresh produce, Ohio Poultry Association passed out farm fresh eggs and the Governor’s Office of Faith Based and Community Initiatives passed out kids’ coats to prepare them for winter.
The day wouldn’t have been possible without the support of CareSource, our volunteers, and everyone else involved! Thank you!!
