Our Needs

Every last one of us shares certain needs ... the three most basic are Food, Clothing and Shelter ...

The West Ohio Food Bank will deliver about six and a half million pounds of food this year to about 170 agencies, shelters, soup kitchens and pantries in our 11 county service area. While that sounds impressive, our need is about 21.5 million pounds of food. What we are looking for are partners who will make it one of their top priorities to help us meet that 15 million pound shortfall.

By the generosity of some major food producers, much of the food we need is available for free if we can pay for the shipping. The bottom line is we need about $600,000.00 to have the necessary food transported here. That works out to about .04¢ for shipping.

While it may be unlikely that any one individual could provide that big of a donation at one time, it doesn't make the goal unattainable.  Your partnership with the West Ohio Food Bank can help us attain this goal!

One of the items that the West Ohio Food Bank needs are partners who are willing to donate a portion of our need, and help become the solution. If we can find 600 businesses, organizations or individuals who are willing to commit $1,000.00, the problem is solved.  Maybe it will take 1,000 businesses who will share $600.00 to become the solution?  Possibly 2,000 individuals, who can contribute $300.00 over the next year, allows us to solve the issue of hunger in Allen, Auglaize, Hancock, Hardin, Mercer, Paulding, Putnam, Seneca, Shelby, Van Wert and Wyandot counties.  Some may be able to do more and we ask that they would. Some may not be able to give at all and we would ask them to share this information with others.

This year commit to doing something good at home. Commit to eliminating hunger in your own back yard.
