Join Ohio in the Fight to End Hunger
Without question, there is a continuing need for food assistance in our community as 1 in 6 people, including 1 in 4 children are food insecure.
Higher prices for food, coupled with the tremendous rise in costs of living in recent years have left increasing numbers of families in the northwest Ohio struggling to make ends meet on a daily basis.
We are grateful to Ohio Governor John Kasich, who has been a longtime champion in the fight to end hunger in Ohio, and a leader in addressing hunger in our state. Our proposal to Governor Kasich is to embrace and support a comprehensive approach to hunger relief by allocating $30 million per year of funding within the FY2018/19 Executive Budget. This approach will allow Ohio to set the standard for addressing food insecurity in the most extensive and focused manner possible.
Now is not the time to jeopardize a safety net that is responsible for catching more and more people – many of them children and seniors – and providing them with one of the most basic necessities of life: food.
