Did you know?
  • Mid-Ohio Foodbank distributed 54 million pounds of food in 2014 - that translates to more than 121,000 meals every day distributed by partner agencies.
  • Those most in need are often the least able to help themselves - children make up 35% and seniors make up 15% of the total food requests that the Mid-Ohio Foodbank receives every year.
  • Of people requesting help from Mid-Ohio Foodbank's partner agencies, 57% have had to choose between buying food and paying for utilities - keeping the heat on during Ohio's cold winters versus eating is a choice no one should have to make.
  • Average household income for a family of 3 helped by Mid-Ohio Foodbank? $1000 a MONTH. The poverty level for a household of 3? $1544 per month.
  • People Mid-Ohio Foodbank helps are likely your neighbors - 1 in 5 are homeowners. Only 5% are homeless.
  • 100% of the money raised through Operation Feed goes straight to feeding the hungry and just $1 provides 3 meals. Just $1 feeds one of your neighbors for an entire day.
In 2010, Cakes for a Cause easily exceed our original goal of raising 4380 meals or $2190! We more than doubled it and raised 9600 meals in one night and were awarded 2010's Outstanding New Campaign from Operation Feed!

In 2011, we raised $8753 - 17,500 meals or enough to feed 16 people every meal for an entire year. Once again, with your help we blew our goal of 10,000 meals out of the water!

In 2012, we raised enough to feed 24 people every meal for an entire year - that's over 26,000 meals! 

In 2013, we raised over 27,000 meals for those in need in Central Ohio!

In 2014, we raised enough to feed 35 people every meal for an entire year!  That's over 38,000 meals for the hungry in Central Ohio!

In 2015, we raised enough to feed 33 people every meal for an entire year!

We're taking 2016 off but will be back and sweeter than ever in 2017!!!
