  • The focus will be on healthier food choices, especially fresh produce.

  • The storefront location will serve as a “food hub” - making fresh produce and other products available to other emergency food providers.

  • The storefront location will serve as a platform for the Ohio Benefit Bank and other services, including nutrition, cooking and financial literacy classes.

  • All distributions will utilized the Choice Model:

    • Promotes dignity and self-esteem.

  • The issue of hunger in our community is too big for any one agency to tackle alone.

  • Rural areas of the county are underserved.

  • Evening and weekend availability is limited.

  • As a system, we need to move more fresh produce to positively impact the health of our community.
