Welcome to the
West Ohio Food Bank
The West Ohio Food Bank mission is to create a hunger free West Central Ohio by soliciting and providing food and grocery products to approved distribution agencies; increasing public awareness of domestic hunger and advocating for public policies that eliminate this problem.
We are not a pantry, soup kitchen or shelter. We are in fact the charity that provides food to more than 170 food pantries, soup kitchens and shelters throughout 11 counties in Western Ohio. We purchase food and collect donated items, which we store in our 35,000 square foot facility. Most "pantries" do not have the space to store a truckload of fresh, frozen or perishable food.
As an affiliate of Feeding America, the largest hunger relief organization in the nation, we receive offers for truckloads of donated product, which we store and distribute according to the need and desire from each member charity.
With a freezer capacity of 5,000 square feet (able to hold 11 truckloads) and a refrigerated capacity of 2,500 square feet (able to hold 4 to 5 truckloads), we can accept larger donations. Our ability to accept frozen and refrigerated products allows us to offer a better variety of nutritious foods to the pantries, soup kitchens and shelters in our service area.
