Large Food Donation Comes in to Foodbank Just in Time for Thanksgiving
DAYTON -- The Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services on Wednesday donated about 40,000 pounds of frozen food items to The Foodbank, Inc.
The Foodbank Inc. is one of five foodbanks across the state all members of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks which will receive food items through the donation. In total, the association estimates that the donation will provide nearly 664,000 servings of protein, 363,000 servings of grain items and 69,000 servings of vegetables statewide.
Due to a recent shift in food operations, the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services was left with 140 skids of overstocked frozen food items. The department had hungry Ohioans in mind when it reached out to the Ohio Association of Foodbanks about donating that product.
Lack of nutrition can exact a substantial toll on the physical and mental health of children and adults, said Tracy Plouck, director of the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. We are pleased to support Ohios foodbanks in their mission to help people in need on the road to healthy, hunger-free lives.
All of the donated product will be distributed to regional foodbanks in time for Thanksgiving food distributions.
Throughout our tri-county region, our member hunger relief charities served about 15,000 households last month, said Michelle Riley, CEO of The Foodbank Inc. We cannot respond to the enormous need for emergency food assistance without the generous support of partners like the Ohio Department of Mental Health & Addiction Services.
With the recent across-the-board reduction in Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits at the federal level, our emergency food assistance network is bracing to serve record numbers of hungry Ohioans this holiday season, said Lisa Hamler-Fugitt, executive director of the Ohio Association of Foodbanks. This donation could not have come at a better time for our hungry friends and neighbors and the foodbanks, food pantries and soup kitchens that serve them.
