Thousands of people in central and eastern Ohio are facing hunger. They are children, seniors, and families; they are neighbors, coworkers, and friends. As the economic crisis continues and unemployment numbers increase, the need for emergency food assistance is greater than ever. When bills loom and impossible decisions must be made, food dollars are often the first to be cut. Meals are skipped. Parents go without to make sure a child is fed.
Each year, Mid-Ohio Foodbank joins forces with local businesses, schools, civic groups, and individuals (like me!) to raise critically needed donations for the Operation Feed community food drive. This effort helps stock the shelves of hundreds of food pantries, soup kitchens and emergency shelters in central and eastern Ohio.
Because I don?t want neighbors in my community to face hunger, I?ve decided to take action. This year, I am forming a team to participate in the 2013 Friends & Family Fundraising drive. I want to invite you to be a part of my effort. Every dollar we raise provides three meals for someone in need.
To help me fight hunger in our community, you can join my team and set up your own personal page. Then you can invite your family and friends to help. Or, you can support my team by making a personal donation.
Every donation counts. One hundred percent of your gift to the Operation Feed will provide food for people in need. For every dollar raised, Operation Feed is able to provide three meals. A donation of just $10.00 provides 30 meals for those less fortunate.
It doesn?t take a lot to make a lot of difference. Consider the following examples:
- Packing lunch for one week instead of buying out saves $25, which provides 75 meals for a worker just laid-off from his job.
- Renting a movie at home instead of buying movie tickets and snacks for a family of four saves $50, which provides 150 meals for a hard-working single mother and her children.
- Cutting-out one grande coffee each week for a year saves $100, which provides 300 meals for an elderly couple on a fixed income.
Because no one should go hungry.
